David and I were born and bred in Southern California.
Still, we have never been able to figure out where, exactly, Cali is.
In fact, we had never heard of Cali until it started showing up in surf mags alongside pictures that looked like home.
But around these parts, calling California “Cali” is like calling San Francisco “Frisco”.
It just ain’t done.
In fact, referring to California as Cali just makes you sound like a New Jersey loan shark. (No offense — it’s an inside joke.)
Anyway, just wanted set the record straight!
