December 30, 2016 surfing podcast. Rules. There are attempts. We’ve all seen the carved wooden signs telling us how, when and where to surf with “etiquette.” Etiquette is fucking golf term. Surfing has no etiquette. Closest to the peak or surfer who’s been waiting? No one really knows. Regardless, rules, norms, ideals – they sound good on wood, but not in the water. Isn’t that part of surfing’s allure? The Wild West. No rules – just paid parking and Strabucks. Our culture holds onto this 1950’s era beatnik-motorcycle-outlaw-fringes-of-society image, but expects everyone to know and follow rules that are carved into a wooden sign. I prefer chaos. I’d be okay with rules if we all followed them. Our problem is that every surfer has his/her own set of individualistic set of rules. ‘Merica. Individualism. Plus we talk about Highlights of 2016 and upcoming WSL WCT Surfers. The best to NOT be World Champion. Jordy. Kolohe. Julian. Who of these three.

In this pod we talk about upgrading the Pipeline Masters and Via the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing. Have the bottom 10 surfers of the WCT relinquish their spots in the PipeMasters so that potential Vans Triple Crown winners and past Pipe Champion can compete; think JOB, Rob Machado, Bruce Irons, Derek Ho, Tom Carroll. Plus must have items for a Mentawai trip. We also talk about Dane Reynolds getting dissed by The Inertia and Dane's rebuttal. We also talk about the WeedMaps House on the North Shore.
