Pikelet is initially captivated and inspired by the surfers from Angelus because they are different from any other masculine role models he has encountered. Reflecting on the moment when he is first introduced to surfing, Pikelet recalls how “there was something special about his insouciance and the princely manner in which he cross-stepped along his long, old-timey board” (p34).
