Hear Ye, Hear Ye, June’s “Comment Of The Month” is…

Tom Curren’s flimsy pseudonym tees off on WSL’s new CEO.

June’s “Comment of the Month” landed on our desk by way of a familiar comment section pundit, Sir Com Turren.

The subject? Fellow comment section stand-out Undergunned’s open letter to the WSL’s new CEO, Ryan Crosby.

As a side note, Ryan Crosby met with Stab’s co-founder Sam McIntosh a couple weeks ago just to meet each other. Without giving away too much, Ryan mentioned that he read Undergunned’s letter and appreciated the counsel from surfing’s most passionate cohort.

Without further ado, let’s reminisce:

In the words of Leonardo da Vinci, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”; Mr. Turren spoke his peace with devastating brevity here.

Com Turren, please send us an email at [email protected] with screenshot proof of your Disqus account — you just won a free year of Stab Premium and you will be entered in the running for the mega-prize for “Comment of the Year” at then end of, you guessed it, the year.

If you remember from this article, Com will now be one of 12 commenters (one for each month) that will be a candidate for COTY. He’ll be sparring against 11 other Hemingways for top honors.

Happy Qwerting.
