Some sign at the Taco Del-Mar in Seattle on 4th Avenue says "No Ho-Dads", and has a picture of some geeky looking dude. I guess it means no Man-Whores.
Deuce Bigalow is a "Ho-Dad".

Someone who clings to a mass marketed subculture that he or she believes to be edgy and dangerous.
The White Stripes record release party was attended by shiftless hodads.

Generic term for a wannabe. At one time, it had something to do with surfers, but no more.
The world loves (hodad)s, do that brand new thing!

A hoedad is a tool used to plant trees, and was adopted as the name of a collective group of tree planters based in Eugene, Oregon and who became influential in the West Coast counterculture.
I used to be a memeber of the hoedads, then I toured with a rock band, until I got my PhD in anthropology and two kids and a mortgage.

A Hodad is an older surfer, who most often rides a longboard and is able to get onto waves before the shortboards, but because the hodad is riding a longboard, he is unable to shred the vave the way a shortboarder would be able to do. The opposite of a gremmie, a younger surfer that rides a short board but who drops in on you everytime.
In the movie "Ride the Wild Surf" the song "Secret Surf Spot":

"My secret surf spot, where nobody knows
The Gremmies and the Hodads never go"

A good surfer,a seasoned surfer thats considered good at surfing. hodads were good and gremys (short for gremlins)were beginers.
That dude that droped in was one bad hodad.
