Corrected on surfer snobbery

I would like to reply to Ike Gonzalez, who wrote the letter “Surfing Into the Sunset” in last week’s New Times (Letters, July 24, 2008), which questioned my quote from Sunset magazine (August 2008 issue, page 67): “You have a lot of cultured and educated people here, but it’s not a stuck-up town—I’m not sure it could be with all the surf shops around.”

Ike Gonzalez wrote that he is a surfer trained in philosophy and “plain language” usage analysis.

After reading his letter, I would like to say that I was wrong: Surfers can be stuck-up!
