What is modern Surf Culture?
It seems that "surf culture" is becoming more like "urban culture." In the Northeast, and in some places in California, modern surf culture and modern urban culture have a lot in common. It used to be that surf culture was totally unique, having it's own vernacular, attitude, appeal... Now it seems like surf culture shares a lot of it's language and lifestyle with urban culture.
It it just my perception, or is this reality?
If it is a reality, why has this happened?
Is it a good thing or a bad thing?
