As with any radical new community, the american surfers of the sixties invented their own little language to describe terms in their everyday life. Surfboard became stick, shorts became jams and words like gnarly surfaced. Usually these terms came from other groups such as jazz musicians and other groups joining in on the surfing wave.

The following list is a work in progress to chart the list of surf lingo and terms. Additions; please /msg me with the name of the node and props goes out to you.

Amped
Angling
Axed
