Surf Show! We learn about wetsuits, the history of San Francisco's Ocean Beach; we talk to Twiggy, winner of the 2014 Mavericks competition; we hear from women in the sport, and find out about surfer dialect. Plus local musicians The Papercuts.
In his backyard in San Francisco’s Outer Richmond neighborhood, Arne Jin An Wong coats a pink and white striped, eight-foot-long surfboard. This board is one of dozens in Wong’s quiver. They are all over his backyard: resting on fences next to tomato vines and suspended from the rafters of his garage. A few faded and yellowed boards are heaped in a pile that he is donating to children in the Philippines.
