“Hey duuuude, yesterday was lit man!”
We all know the surfer dude voices. A slow, lazy vibe where everyone is referred to as 'dude' and every sentence ends with 'man,' and sometimes begins with 'okay.' It represents a careless sense of freedom that we all wish we had, but could never pursue.
It’s the relaxed and carefree voice that alludes to not really being concerned about anything but lazing around the beach and catching a wave. The surfer dude voice is sluggish and soft, laid-back and relaxed. Surfers often hang out in groups, so the surfer voice is not individualistic.
Surfer dude voices are commonly used with stoners in movies and films. The slow, only slightly incomprehensible speech common with the voice is untroubled and full of bliss, minding its own business. The voice can be used on radio programs, audio presentations, and movies. An impression of the surfer dudes using the voice is normally effective in comedy sets and skits.
It is chill and nonchalant. The only shouting you'll ever hear is from the excitement of riding the waves, and even then, it will be a simple 'Woohoo!" Due to its roots in Southern California, the voice incorporates a lot of Spanish slang words. One of the Surfer Dude voice's defining qualities is the frequent use of words like 'dude,' 'bro' and 'cool.'
Although the surfer dude voices have fallen out of style (they were frequently used in the '80s), they are still common in coastal Southern California.
