The other day we were in Cardiff-by-the-Sea and saw this very unusual statue. So I asked a local about it and he said it is named The Magic Carpet Ride, but everyone calls it The Cardiff Kook. Most of the surfing community doesn't like it cause they say it looks like a novice surfer that is about to fall off his board. People often dress him up in all sorts of gear. That day he was in Del Mar Racing garb since it is Racing season.
I want to come back and see the Kook in October - he must look fab in Pink !
