The Debate: Ace Buchan Vs. Basement-Dwelling Surf Critic
Whose side are you on?
Your boy got fucking roasted in the commentslast week.
“Ace is a saint. He deserves better than your shithouse reporting. You’re lucky he’s a nice bloke and doesn’t bash midgets, even when they deserve it.”
“Can’t help but draw comparisons from your stature to your remarks about Ace. If you surfed anything like Ace I might actually watch one of your board reviews. Ace is an absolute champion of the sport and is the ultimate competitor. Every year he puts his precise backhand attack or forehand tube riding prowess to work and goes deep into multiple contests. Respect the ace you joker.”
“Who the fuck is this dumb ass potato cunt anyway?”
We haven’t seen such fanatical support for a pro surfer since Slater did a bellyflop at Lowers. This just goes to show the impact that Ace has had over his 14 years on tour. The man is truly beloved by all.
…But does that really mean we can’t be critical of his surfing?
From the safety of my mom’s basement, Ace, Stace, and I debated such topics on another episode of the Stab CUSP. Listen below, or on Apple Podcasts (under ‘Stab Podcasts’). Our Spotify deal is slated for mid-2029.
