Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #24

 I enjoyed this challenge and had many ideas but using the surfboard as part of the oval sold me.
Trouble was that I ended up covering the seagull with the sentiment.
Never mind, I love the way it turned out.

 I was looking at Shirley's blog and she has a friend starting up a new Monthly Card competition Cards for men and is having a DT call.  I have decided to enter my Surfer Dude and try out.

 Thank you for looking
