Surfer Dude, former Viking.

Beach Dude Viking

The Nordic is now The Surf Land Hotel. The Viking has been renovated and rebranded to a surfer dude.

Hitchhiking Viking

A shirtless viking in jeans with his thumb out like he's hitching a ride. From what I can find, he might be owned by the Nordic Oceanfront Inn.

[Jeff V, 09/04/2016]

He's not hitchhiking; he's pointing to his left, like a Viking directional arrow, to the Nordic Oceanfront Inn. But we like your interpretation better.
