Hard to say which sport/fad was more popular at the beach for Fitzgerald’s generation of Jazz Age thrill seekers. Torpedo racing was only barely legal, and more expensive than you might guess. Zeppelin surfing, which an agile lad could master in a day, got a bit sketchy when a Nor’easter blew in. But for showing off skill sets, small airship fishing was the true sportsman’s test. A feisty Marlin could put the whole crew in the hospital.
