Default Drag Surfing In Canada



Some folks do some weird shit to relax. I am one of them. I live land locked in the middle of Central Texas, but I like to escape the horrors of life (yeah, right) by laying on my couch and watching surf movies. I like the old ones, the news, the bad...

Hell... I can't tell it from Mo-Kan.

I wasn't prepared for the music though. I'll hit the bong and watch it again...

Nice vibe with the jittery old grainy footage and the music. Reminded me of "The Wonder Years" tv show which would do that from time to time, but this was the real deal.

Close as we get to a time machine I'd say. Thanks for showing us.

Cool!

I used to work at a place in LaJolla, CA back in the day and there was a lady at the place that used to ride on Duke Kahanamoku's shoulders while he was surfing and she used to "hang" out with him. She would tell me some great stories about the surfing in Hawaii back in 1930's.

Great song selection. This site is already my favorite hot rod place. You keep posting my favorite music and I may not have time to go to work. Aloha

Flag men, hole shots, hot rods and heads-up racing. It just doesn't get any better than this!

Jeff this is a great picture and historic and I don't mean to have this thought but it looks like all these guys had too much coffee and all had the same urge at the same time. OK I'll go sit in the corner now.

Dammit man, if that didn't lower my blood pressure by about half. Thanks for putting this up. My wife's car decided to stop working on her this morning leaving her stranded down the road in morning rush hour. So after dealing with getting everyone to work and school and the car back home to sort it out later, this was very welcome. Hope to see you this weekend. We'll watch some other old cars go down another cool old track.

Great footage, some nice iron in there.

I was really hoping that the gals in you picture were really female given the title of the post! "Drag Surfing". lol

Thanks for a good start to the day.

Great video! Thanks for posting it! I had a buddy
who raced at Desronto in the early '70's, probably
just before the track closed down.

You have a very good ear for music, I say you live in the right little city for that art.
