backwashy - when a wave washes up to the shore then rebounds and heads back oceanward to collide with subsequent shorebound breaking waves.

love the coffee myself (my mum actually owns a cafe/restaurant), but it seems some of the baby boomer set have created an idyllic sunday morning "scene" involving very little surfing, but about 2 1/2 hours sitting around a coffee shop with the corporate icons: a $100,000+ RV & a McTavish board - I'm...

kooks or cooks - both

one of the kooks is the host for "my restuarant rules" as well, I think.
