Describes the historical, cultural, and mythic contexts that infuse the territorial exclusionary practices of surfers. Analyzes surfers' rhetorical responses in letters published in surfing magazines, describing how rhetors use economic and religious metaphors to position ideologies that both reproduce and mediate cultural myths of perfection through the redemptive strategies of scapegoating and mortification.
