Hey, dude – Surf’s up for specialty tags in Florida

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Dudes and wahines soon may be able to choose from two bodacious license tags to hang from the back bumpers of their woodies when they head to the beach to hang ten.

State bills creating the two surfing plates and other specialty tags for the St. Johns River, catch-and-release fishing and a Marion County horse park cleared a House committee on Wednesday.

One of the surfing tags would be dubbed Let’s Go Surfing and raise money for the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame and Museum through a $25 annual fee.

The other would be called Endless Summer. Its $25 fee would go to the Surfing Evolution & Preservation Corp. to foster interest in the sport.
