Calendars featuring pictures of a surfing sculpture in goofy garb are now on sale in Encinitas.
The 13-month calendar —- created by locals Wayne Lynch and Fred Caldwell —- gives a month-by-month glance at costumes that have adorned the city's "The Magic Carpet Ride" sculpture at Chesterfield Drive and South Coast Highway 101.
The bronze sculpture has been plagued by pranksters and unofficially dubbed the "Cardiff Kook" since it was installed in 2007. Critics have said the surfer depicted in the piece has an effeminate stance and looks like a novice.
