Well when you grow up a block and a half from the ocean in Daytona Beach, you pretty much have no choice to surf and or skate.
You had to have a tan, long hair, strong shoulders, and permanantly attached board shorts just to fit in.
I didn't skate a whole lot and wasn't very good. I stuck to my longboard which was great to cruise to the beach ramp to check the surf every morning. If the waves were good I was in the water, if not I found some trouble to get into
I listened to just about anything in those days. As far as punk rock is concerned some of my faves were Sonic Youth, MXPX, Bad Religion, Offspring, Blink 182, Unwritten Law, Sublime, Social D, NoFX.... etc.
