2009 - A Year In Review

This picture sent in by reader Stuart says it all. It was the year of the McConaugheyDonkey. To see him using a LionGamez land SUP stick tops the cake. Let's hope that 2010 brings better days! Happy New Year to you all!

Tranny Surfer

So I was looking for a bit of humor this morning and went to Google Images. While I strongly recommend that you DO NOT do this, I put "tranny surfer" in as the search parameter. Look who came up on page one! LOL

Apparently, The SD UT ran this pic on their front page yesterday and it created quite a stir on various surfing message boards. Personally, it doesn't surprise me anymore. Swamis in all its glory. Photo Charlie Neuman and sent to me by my friend Bob.

Great White Follow-up!

GWS over on the surfermag BB posted this one up yesterday and I thought it was excellent. In particular, I love the board's perspective on a few of the "missle launches". Look closely and you'll see what I mean.

We Finally Have a Winner

Reader Edward sent in a picture of the only acceptable use for SUP. Still, I've got to wonder if even the dog thinks that these guys are Oarons. Picture from the recent "Atlantic Assault" from Kitty Hawk NC. Confused, so was I...but that's what Ed said.

Out For Blood

Reportedly, over the weekend there was an incident where one of these guys was "Just Taking It" in the lineup without respect to the local surf crew. Well, push came to shove and the SUP'er tried to attack the surfer with his paddle...only to get the tables turned and a beatdown of his own. If you see these guys, slap them for me.

This video was hotly debated over at the Surfermag message board. If Tom thinks Chuck is "ripping" in this video, I would suggest he visit his eye doctor.
