Stab Pod: The WSL’s New “Make Or Break” Series Will Burn Bridges, Floaty GOAT Endorfins, & Is Self-Hooting A Sin?
“They’re going to catch people talking shit about one another for sure” – Ronnie Blakey
This week’s pod is a fast-unraveling tapestry with many loose ends.
Danny and Buck discuss the odd optics of chop hops at Big Wave events, Kelly Slater’s new fin company ‘Endorfins’, and Ronnie Blakey elaborates on the highly-invasive extenda-boom mic pole catching WSL surfers talking shit in the forthcoming “Make or Break” series.
The boys also discuss the confusing ontology of NFT’s, Koa Smith’s savvy early adoption of fringe trends, and grabble with the suitable penance for a self-hooting surf sin.
This weeks’ CUSP takes on an abbreviated form, covering the Vans Triple Crown rule changes, the progressive board continuum, and what happens when the average punter surfs Pipe.
