The only surfer we unfortunately saw having to poo and doing it was CJ Hobgood. He was out surfing in Jeffreys Bay and as he began taking off his wetsuit he said “I am going where no man has ever gone.”

Do I want Kelly Slater To Win Another Title… No!

“Am I voting for Kelly to win – of course (along with Kolohe). I don’t want to jinx Kelly, but if he never won another world title again I would be very happy knowing I have this shot of him winning his last world title!” – Jack English

This is one of my personal favorite photos of Kelly and then you have the american flag, that’s just the icing on the cake!

Surfing Industry Takes Sustainability For A Ride With Greg Long

“THERE IS ONLY 15% ALGAE CONTENT IN THESE “BIO-BASED” SURFBOARDS. PLEASE STOP GREENWASHING AND SHARE THE FACTS!” – NEWSTRUTH1

“This is NOT true. Professor Steve Mayfield was NOT the sole inventor! UCSD students helped invent and create the world’s first algae-based surfboard. It’s a disappointment to not give credit where credit is due. Shame on you Professor Steve Mayfield for not acknowledging the hard working kids. And shame on your for taking all the credit. Boo!” – NEWSGAL2015
