Charlie Don’t Surf – so many pop culture inspirations

Sentimental as Anything

I’ve been busy surfing today – surfing the internet  – inspired to find out more about Charlie Don’t Surf.

Many things I DID know – still I discovered other things about this famous line.

Do you know:

1. What movie that line is from?

2. What band was inspired to write a song by the same name?

3. It’s also the name of a restaurant  – and an Irish band.

I haven’t thought of that line for years until I dug out an old surf shirt – and was inspired to “surf” the internet and found out so many pop culture references.

That line is from Apocalypse Now where Kilgore (Robert Duval) orders some of his men to surf a break that’s under enemy fire.

From memory – the lines are something like:

That’s Charlie’s point – says a soldier.

Charlie don’t surf – says Kilgore.


The  band The Clash
