Its cool to be a Kook on Cape Cod!
When you first start learning how to surf you are a Kook. Its not a bad thing. It just is that way; like being a larvae before you are a butterfly. The beaches on the Cape are beautiful and though Cape Cod is not that famous for surfing, the Summer of 2008 has seen some of the biggest surf since the indians. Having a surf board under your arm and heading towards the waves give you the same credibility that drawing or painting in a plaza in Paris gives you.
Local surfers are genorous with their knowledge of the areas and the benificial tides and recieve the tourist well for the most part. When visiting Provincetown or the sourounding areas make sure to bring a surfboard. There is not much surfing in Provincetown itself but some of the best surfing on Cape Cod is just minutes away out of town. There is Coast Guard Beach, Long Nook Beach and Brush Hollow all in the neighbooring town of Truro that offer great waves. If you don't have a surfboard or a wet suit you can rent one at the many surf shops on Cape Cod.
Kooks and surfers have similar ambitions. They both want to catch some wave except surfers catch more wave than Kooks do. But hey, there is always tomorrow.
