Now here’s a bit of fun! We’re all here because we like to surf, presumably, and, in this fickle sport that largely consists of bobbing around in rubber suits on pieces of foam licked with fibreglass, there aren’t many reasons to become irate. After all, everything’s a waste of time, and surfing’s as fine a way to whittle away the hours as any!

In the name of research I browsed the feed of the world’s biggest Golf site, the appropriately named Golf.com. The reason being that golf’s a pointless hobby, just like surfing, and I was curious as to the intensity of golf geek commentary. The most interesting jab I could find was on an article about Tiger Woods (The world’s most prolific golfer/adulterer/perfect trolling candidate) and it read, “he needs to just go away at this point.” Jeez, thank the Lord on high that our merry band of surf commentators are void of such beigist sentiment, and instead excrete zest!

This collab with our pals at Billabong, which you can now see crammed into every possible interim of the Billabong Pro, Tahiti (ah, the joys of advertising in a sport that’s 83 percent downtime), is positively smile inducing. Seeing Taj, Creed, Dorian (untouchable) giggling at the cheeky words of our darling key tappers fills us with indescribable joy. After all, seriously is no way to live!
