50's term for a greaser, someone who hung out at the beach, but definitely not a surfer. Hodads were into cars, music and were a type of counterculture style. These were NOT posers, as some of the other definitions had stated...Surfer's and Hodad's would be completely separate groups, that often clashed with each other.
in the beach communities in the 50's one was either a hodad or a surfer. Hodad's wore a very specific style of shoes, jeans, and a t-shirt (preferably white). They were NOT posers, and wouldn't be caught dead hangin' with a surfer. aka...low riders

(circa 1950's) A poser (faker) surfer.

One who drives to the beach with a board on the car, sticks his board in the sand and tans and picks up Betties (See Betty).

A non-surfer.
While riding the best wave of the day, I noticed a hodad on the beach chatting up the bikini I had my eye on.

Look at that hodad with at board there. He's going to hurt himself.
