Surfing likes to put a positive slant, and that’s great. But is saying something is good, bad…?

Go to a bar, thinking, ‘This should be cool’. But it’s some kind of fucked time warp. There’s a clown shouting into a mic. There you are, standing under one of Jake the Snake’s signed boards (!) listening to some clown shouting all night. Awesome. Sure, the waves get good, but. Where else in the real world would they allow chumps on those weird stand up jetskis wearing moto-x pants and helmets to tear through the lineups? Where else in a supposed international surfing resort do they close the beach for a bunch of redneck bellends on motobikes and quads to tear up and down for three days?
