Cardiff, California’s favorite statue received yet another makeover this weekend. The appropriately named ‘Cardiff-Kook’, the $120,000 disaster of an attempt to honor the surfing community, was once again donned in women’s apparel.
It’s been a little more than 8 months since the statue was first unveiled. To this day I still have a hard time figuring out how in the world anyone ever authorized putting that thing up. Is this really the best idea they could come up with when deciding how to spend that type of money on honoring the surf community? Especially in a surf-community like Cardiff.
I have yet to meet a Cardiff resident/surfer who in any way, shape, or form feels honored by this piece of metal. As long as the statue stays erected we can look forward to checking out its latest outfit time after time. I wonder what look it will go for next?
