The first surfboard

at the local beaches was a 9'6" Malibu "popout" shared by five teenagers. Board wax was purchased in rock-hard paraffin blocks from the local grocery store. There were no surf shops or waves crowded with other surfers. These kids were stoked and it was contagious! The surfing boom had exploded.
