Barefoot Surfari


What initially seemed to be simply a covert trip to the Bixby Ranch for a couple of Gremmies turned out to signify their initiation into the exclusive group of Malibu surfers who regulated the social hierarchy in The Pit. This sequel to Denny Aaberg’s “No Pants Mance” from the previous issue of The Surfer’s Journal provides a unique pre-teen’s perspective of the hostility of the Bixby Ranch’s “Surfing Cowboys”, and his experience in reconciling his passion for surfing alone with the social dynamic that he loves at home in Malibu.
