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 clothing.....black 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

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.

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.
