not a fact checker, just a shit stirrir. And I do respect core shops whether or not their owners fall off the deep end. A core shop focuses their business on surf gear, not poser-wear.
glad surfrider cleaned up the ocean, but I don't think it is fair to criticize the japanese. They kill whales and dolphins, so what, we kill cows and chickens.
You're more likely to get sick from e coli in the ocean than pulpmill toxins.
Don't hate Monty for selling out, he's not making any money. I have more respect for coreshops like Humboldt Surf, but you can't hate Monty for doing what most surfers dream of.
No non-profit organizations are perfect. There are plenty of douchebags involved with Surfrider. I vomit in my mouth when I read they are suing the mill (that provides many honest jobs for hardworking families) to provide showers to surfers that can easily shower at home. So when you buy your surfrider t-shit so you can wear your eco grooviness on your sleeve, remember your money goes to lawyers that sue the pillars of our local economy.
just read "why oh why" and laughed because I thought of Andy too. Such a douchebag.
Like growing weed, you don't talk about surfing. That's because the guys that come up from LA to surf also come up to grow. Fine with me, but when they think they have the right to drop in on people because they are better surfers, I'll tell all the wrong people about their grow. It's a small town.
