About "The Kook"
(Officially "The Magic Carpet Ride")
If you've run on the Coast Highway in Encinitas, then you've run
by the The Magic Carpet Ride - a.k.a. The Cardiff Kook. The Kook has become a landmark along State Coast Highway 101 and its popularity is renowned. Did you know at one point The Cardiff Kook was the most Googles sports figure in the world? Yep! The nickname comes from the statue’s infamous pose: one that local surfers tease makes him look like a “kook”. It is frequently adorned with various decorations or completely decked out in costumes
to fit the occasion.
Stop by to see it on your way to enjoy our
beautiful Encinitas beaches, if you’re camping
at the nearby San Elijo State Beach
Campground, or on your next training run
for The Kook Run.
