Cardiff By The Sea is great surfing spot in North County San Diego. Three years ago the Cardiff Botanical Society decided to commission a statue of a surfer to be placed on the sidewalk outside the San Elijo State Beach campground. While the idea at the time was with good intentions it somehow failed miserably. Instead of creating a macho surfer riding a sick wave it ended up being more of a flamboyant ballerina flailing his arms while attempting not to fall off his surf board. Because of this tons of pranks have been done to the statue over the years. From him being put in a bikini to a big great white shark attacking him I will share the photos and my thoughts with you.
