In the mid 1970’s, California experienced a drought of unprecedented proportions. Water became so sparse that storm drains dried and swimming pools were emptied… and, whilst most of the town was drowning in distress (pun very much intended), there was a small contingent of rebellious young surfers who chose to make the chaos their playground. The town was forever changed by the surfing community, and the surfing community was forever changed by the town!
