Quincy Symonds Surfing For Herself Or Funding Her Parents

It’s pretty sad seeing Quincy Symonds (6 years old) and her sponsored happy parents plastering her surfboard with stickers (sponsors) – really? She’s six and your already having your child put stickers on her board as if she has really achieved anything. So tell us this – by putting on these stickers is your daughter truly being paid by all seven brands (of course not).

It’s parents like you that make us puke! Seeing kids at such a young age thinking they are truly “sponsored” and then growing up thinking they need to make their sponsors happy first instead of just enjoying surfing. Let your kid be a kid – if they rip sponsors will come with time (in their teens).

Quincy being overshadowed by her mom and dad to make sure her sticker placement is right

Go make mommy and daddy proud – don’t surf for yourself Quincy, remember those logos can come off just as quick as they appeared

Chasing Mavericks With Kyle Thiermann

Kyle Thiermann goes to surf Mavericks, but on his way his car breaks down (in Half Moon Bay) and he has to push his car the remaining way to the parking lot where the surfers change and paddle out at Mavericks.

“I just reviewed footage I’m pretty sure you filled your car up with gasoline and it’s a diesel.” – Camerman

This video is really cool and we thought how great it was seeing how positive Kyle was during his entire ordeal

$1,200 later Kyle found out it was gasoline that had ruined the engine

Surfer Taz Knight Surfing At Todos Santos (Killers)

Taz Knight get’s caught inside while surfing Killers off the Todos Santos Islands by what he called a “25ft set of the day” and is all documented with a video camera that is placed on his surfboard. We’re not sure if it had helped, but sometimes it’s always better to paddle in and not out when big waves are coming.
