As I said, this was the vague impression of Mid-Landers, who had probably
never even been "out there". And a lot of Washingtonians and Oregonians for
a while there, seemed to be transplants from California, and thus, the
perceived spread of the "surfer-like" speech.

Nirvana, were from Seattle, the alleged home of grunge, which is what I
think you are describing. As far as sounding like surfers--I don't think so.
I can't imagine anyone trying to sound like a surfer here. That's just a
different culture. (Also, the water's too cold to be into surfing, unless
you have a thick wet suit). I guess we Oregonians are just 'out there'
(i.e. West) and are largely unknown. That's just fine.
