At last some real reporting…

In this link there are questions asked… I like it but where are the answers! When Rip Curl pulled out of the annually run 6-Star prime in Hossegor after 25years of loyal support because they could save the prize money and have as many people turn up anyway to look at a music festival running of Rip Curl’s SURF name, it made me think about how marketing affects surfing.. The people paying the 70 bucks, euros, whatever for a pair of fucking boardshorts are not the guys in the depths of some jungle surfing their brains out. Surfing has gone yuppie! When I hear stories of the amounts of money the top guys are getting it makes me sick.. There are a select few who are worth it and are good at their job. I don’t say that lightly.. The dream tour is on its way out! I think that the people who grew up with surfing and followed it their whole lives are sick of the bullshit that carries on with it all! Its time for a long overdue change and for me personally, I can’t wait for the Taj to win a title, and go back to producing the most exciting surf movies one can watch.
