grab yr board and go sidewalk surfin'

this is a cool jan & dean clip of the duo goofing off on skateboards to their song 'sidewalk surfin'. i liked jan & dean when i was a kid and today the conversation veered toward the cool stuff you can find at youtube. i mentioned the short stag films by irving klaw and that yesterday was klaw's birthday. then someone mentioned reading about jan & dean on the web which led him to looking at some stuff by the duo at youtube, including the above clip. god bless the infoweb! this is early skating celebrated by a pair of so cal kids who made some good tunes in the style of surf music popularized by the beach boys among others. so grab yr stick and hit the streets! skate or die!
