1I tried to miss the whole car song era. My heart wasn't into any car stuff I did. I didn't care. But I was and still am a real surfer. I started when I was 15. It was just what the neighborhood guys did in high school. I lived next to Santa Monica, so I live up in Santa Barbara close to the beach.
