About "The Kook"
(Officially "The Magic Carpet Ride")
The Cardiff Kook is a landmark along State Coast Highway 101 in the Cardiff By The Sea neighborhood of Encinitas. 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 or if you’re camping at the nearby San Elijo State Beach Campground.
