Ever since Gidget (Sandra Dee) was initiated into the California surfing culture by Moondoggie (James Darren) on the big screen in Gidget (1959), the surfing lifestyle has become an important part of the American experience. Mainstream movies and movie stars have paid homage to the surfing subculture for more than fifty years.
From the disappointment of Chadwick Gates (Elvis Presley) career choices in Blue Hawaii (1961) to DeeDee’s (Annette Funicello) literal free fall for Frankie (Frankie Avalon) in Beach Blanket Bingo (1965), beach party films and surfing movies have enamored audiences around the world. More recent blockbusters like Point Break (1991) with Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves, Blue Crush (2002) with Kate Bosworth, and Soul Surfer (2011) with AnnaSophia Robb, Helen Hunt, and Dennis Quaid prove that the surfing lifestyle is not a passing fad.
Rumor has it that many of these movie stars would have owned a surfing house plaque from the beach address plaques collection at Classy Plaques had they known about them. Buy a plaque and Be a star!
Surfing is one of the oldest practiced sports on the planet. The idea of riding waves on a wooden board originated in Western Polynesia more than three thousand years ago. Early surfers were fishermen who discovered that riding waves was a good way to get to shore with their catch. Over time, ‘catching a wave’ morphed from an efficient work activity to an enjoyable pastime. And the revolutionary idea of surfing for fun and sport was born! The rest is history.
Now that you know more than you ever thought you would know about surfing (and then some), we invite you to check out our beach address plaques collection and harness the power, beauty, and excitement of ‘catching the ‘perfect wave’ for your home – with a surfing house plaque from Classy Plaques.
