Endogenous Propoerty Rights - Gnarly Dude
I wish I thought of this - "Quality and the Commons: The Surf Gangs of California." Growing up in So Cal, it was always clear that non-locals had better steer clear of the best surf spots when the waves were up. I was not a surfer, but half of my high school water polo team was. When the surf was up, we could not have a decent practice because they all ditched school to go surf. Since we were inland a few miles, they were non-locals and would come back with stories of the fights they got into with the locals. Of course, this notion was succinctly summed up in Oingo Boingo's My Beach" and My Wave" decades ago.
