Another week. Another word. Another dollar. Another advertiser. Yes, in between occasional stories we presented a. Lot. Of. Adverts. This. Week – how else do you think we keep the lights on?

So, this week in the shallow, self-lo(ath)ving sea of Stab we ran a booger video (featuring Chippa Wilson!). We made feasible claims like John will win the world title, Julian Wilson won’t and that JJF and Gabs is the greatest thing happening in competitive surfing right now. Matt Bromley dropped the edit of the week, maybe the month. Our new staffer, the artist formerly known as Reverend Honey Suckle aka Rory Parker divulged into what’s really going wrong with the Eddie – and how we, likely, will never see it run again. We talked the title by the numbers. Drag Board Co made us a decent Spotify playlist. We showcased a boy named Natxo’s (pronounced Nacho) “Discovery.” Gashtonaggans gave us a bootstrapped detail of what’s really going on in Portugal. And, our dear Jake Howard rallied the surf community and came to the aid of the victims in the Sonoma fires.

It all happened. Again. Somewhere:
