Kook / NPR

Heard the word 'kook' on NPR last night. Crazy. It was a great story about what it means to be a surfer, including the joys of the dawn patrol. It's hard for a surfer to describe this stuff without sounding like Jeff Spicoli. The guy being interviewed had been an outdoors writer for awhile, so that helped, but he also went through the conversion abruptly and recently, so I think it was easier for him to relate to normal people. Blahblahblah...
