Stab Podcast: An Event We Passionately Debated For The Past 12 Months

Feedback from the WSL Finals, slaps of justice, and a Russian SUP parade.

Words by stab

Buck and Danny welcome us back to our weekly podcast with the infamous soundbite we once removed at the request of listener, then brought back by the demand of another.

We’re podcast chameleons, adapting to whatever shade of foliage our fans desire.

We then re-visit the video of a Portuguese Local giving a board thief the slap of a lifetime. For some reason, the swift hand of justice meant the culprits didn’t have to go to jail. Portugal’s legal policies are strange, but we tackle issues and words of all sizes on this show.

The fellas also cover the Russian SUP parade. Think of a marvelous floating crowd filled with werewolves, jetpacks, and everything in between.  In Russia, the acronym SUP stands for “Super Ultimate Party.”

As the show continues, Buck lets us know he has been soft. Not only during attempts at hanky panky but also with his confession of surf sins. Our Editor in Chief shares his darkest act of moral corruption, which he performed as a teenager during a surf trip to Puerto Rico.

The WSL Finals

It was a different experience, but for the most part, our staff was impressed with the event. We had soldiers stationed behind friendly lines, eyes in the sky, and ears pressed against the ground.

All in all, our CUSP hosts Mikey and Stace, we’re impressed by the finals day format. The waves were pumping, the surfing was top-notch, and champions were crowned.
