Repeatedly Trolled Surfer ‘Kook’ Statue Makes Cali Town Famous

The road to fail is paved with good intentions. Here’s a $120,000, 16 feet awkward surfer statue in some little Cali town that’s been relentlessly humiliated by locals for being weak. It’s been clowned, drag-a-fied, jack-o-lanterned and impressively papier-mâchéd into the gaping jaws of a giant white shark. The consensus: the “Cardiff Kook” pranksters are artists and not vandals.
