Once again Stab presents a curation of questionable keyboard murmurs from your favourite discussion platform. We’ve waded through the masses of overwhelming beauty and brilliance harvested in the comments section of this dot com and selected our faves. Remarkable how similar genius and insanity are, right? Anyhow, here is week’s ripest fruit.



08. 16 Year-Old Finn McGill And 40 Year-Old Gavin Beschen Will Surf The Pipe Masters

“Jamie O’Brien weaved his way through to a quarterfinal finish.” Could have also read, “Jamie O got through his first round heat.” You are not fooling me with your fancy photo captions.” – Phat-wan kerr



07. It’s Been A Strange Winter On The North Shore

“When are you going to show your shitty surfing again? That’s why I keep coming back to this site.” – Lemmy



06. The Japanese And The Jordy Smith

“Anyone else read this as: “The Japanese Jordy Smith”? I’m feeling kinda ripped off…” – Ando’s Back Knee



05. Gabriel Medina: “Maybe I’m Learning How To Lose”

“Now this is the alternative to “Twelve” I’ve been looking for.” – Wiggolly’s Paddling Style



04. Watch Now: Mongrel Mike, Starring Mikey Wright

“So you’re telling me if I buy these trunks I’ll be wrangling pussy and incinerating rubber, better buy those trunks then.” – Noa’s last dart



03. A Surfboard You’ll Likely Enjoy: The JS Hyfi Monsta Box

“Dad just laughed and said me too, when I said I wanted a monsta box for Xmas.” – Gandhi



02. Is Kelly Slater On His Way To Another Pipe Masters Victory?

“That had to be the best Trestles I’ve ever seen in a Pipe comp.” – Balderdash Ballyhoo



01. Scientists Just Confirmed The Height Of The Largest Wave On Record

“Unless a pack of Brazzo bodyboarders, overweight americans on SUPs, and Garrett McNamara with his jet board were there to ride it, it didn’t happen.” – dontneednochokebrain
