Watch: Snaketales Establishes A New Phone-Free Rule, Surfers Struggle To Abide
Watch as Hiroto Ohara is punished for his lack of golf skills and/or social media use.
How much time do you spend on your phone each day?
As recently as a year ago, modern folk could blissfully ignore the reality of their usage, with most claiming to spend an hour or less per day staring at pixels. Now thanks to Screentime, we're forced to reconcile the truth of our filthy phone addictions, as a weekly report details our average usage beyond the point of plausible deniability. Results are often shocking.
My typical number? Four hours a day (ugh).
That's, of course, on top of at least eight hours on the computer. My life happens through a screen. So fake, and probably cancer-causing!
In an effort to rid the world of the phone plague, Jake Paterson set a new rule for the recent Ballito comp—whichever surfer had the most amount of Screentime at the end of the week would be forced to buy dinner for the entire crew. That's including Nat Young, Ethan Ewing, Hiroto Ohara, Griffin Colapinto, Mihimana Braye, and Snake.
