Welcome back to our curation of the best type bytes on Stab in recent discussion. It’s been a minute since our last compilation, but that’s only because of the sheer mass of overwhelming beauty and brilliance harvested in the comments section of this dot com. Remarkable how similar genius and insanity are, right? Anyhow, here is this month’s ripest fruit.



08. Watch: Young Kelly Slater Ruling Trestles And The North Shore

“shit, my hair looks just like his, i’m doomed” – nick van dick



07. Three Surfers Write Big New Deals, Others Try To Hold On

“Better take down that clip of Noa flogging the Rusty boardies then. Sounds like I’ve had my fucking last dart too unfortunately.” – Noa’s last dart

“don’t be like that, think of the fans.” – Pha-wan kerr > Noa’s last dart



06. RIP: Lunada Bay Boys, 40 Years Of Localism And Havoc Laid To Rest

“Americans should start doing the third world’s brand of localism, if you’re American and white, you’re a local. I mean it’s 2016, Drumpf is president, let’s see a little more effort USA.” – david f

“sadly, david f, your 2 months off means you need to reassert yourself at the top of the upvote food chain. fyi, trump basing seems already so November on this site.” – dontneednochokebrain > david f



05. “People Call You The Australian Taylor Steele”

Serious question: Australia, why do you all have such nasal voices? Occ sounds like he just punched a helium bong. Is it genetic? Is it a climate thing?” – Bertleman



04. Watch: ‘Bezerke’, A Grand Introduction To The Fearless Russell Bierke

“Russell’s trick to staying so pale is obviously never leaving the barrel. Dude is gonna be the youngest big wave champion ever.” – The Don of Yaupon



03. Chippa Wilson Welcomes You To “Rancho Relaxo”

“Thank you Stab for the Ivy Miller article. What an incredibly beautiful woman. I’m ok that her nipples were not shown since that was what she asked, her ass totally made up for it.” – ACTIVE SHOOTER



02. The Price Is Right: A Success In Negotiation Saves The Eddie

“Is anyone ever going to realise that putting a GoPro on the nose of a surfboard makes even a 40 foot wave look head high?” – The Don of Yaupon



01. Uh, I Think It’s Okay To Want To Improve Your Surfing

“I respect your bravery for putting this up, but i’m still going to poop on the windshield of your jeep” – gatorbeug

“+1000 for windshield poops! But no doubt Morgan, that was pretty solid of ya. Surfing is meant to be enjoyed by the slider.” – ValiantTrumpScore > gatorbeug
