The subprime meltdown is bad for surfers

Apparently the waves have been particularly tasty in SoCal (I haven't paddled out in quite a while), but they are also packed all day, every day. Surfline, a surfing website, went to find out who all the surfers were in the line up on a recent weekday afternoon in Orange County. Not surprisingly, most people they talked to were in the surf business or worked evenings. But a few were out of work mortgage bankers and other self employed folks having bad years (realtors?)
So the subprime meltdown is bad for Americans, bad for Wall Street, and bad for surfing. Just when you think it couldn't get worse...
