You know that move a dog does when he's got worms? Usually it's in the backyard on the grass, but sometimes on the carpet. Well, this guy is doing his best impression while surfing Lobster Lounge. Odd, to say the least. Photo Joe Ewing.

Are You Bummed, Man?

I love this pic from Joe Ewing. Classic OB moment.

PS. I didn't realize that they make bell-bottom wetsuits these days!

PSS. I've been getting a lot of material from Hurricane Bill. We'll do a week-long tribute to HB rippers next week!

Eating Magu

Reader Randy sent this one in from the recent Magu contest. Looks like one of the contestants forgot that this spot eats funboards for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Smile, You're About To Get Owned!

According to eyewitness accounts, this girl went face-first into the trough, swallowed a bunch of water, exited the water, and vowed to never surf again. One million to go! Let this be a lesson to you guys, the boyfriend/instructor was certain to get no action for some time after this.

Photo reader Rick.

Spit or Swallow?

I'll take the spit everytime...especially on a wave like this. Reader cottons sent this in with a note: My friend who sent this swears there is an SUP and paddle in there somewhere...

What the.....

Anyone got a name for this? Will it be the next sport of "watermen"? Will Laird do it...or has he done it? So many questions, so few answers. Reader zebulun sent this in with an appropriate file name: oh my god...
