That was a pretty sick short video... Not that my opinion, or anyone elses opinion should matter but - I sort of feel like if you rip, or are at least very competent (which I'm sure you are) you should wear whatever you want... Only thing that I ever judge is someone who has no clue wtf they are doing with 15 pretend sponsor stickers on there board like they're getting a quick sesh in right before there flight to a contest in Indo...
nothing screams 'Kook' louder than following the latest trends in everything. Kinda reminds me of the old 'Wilber Kookmeyer" comics where he had all the flashy gear and sported the latest 'fashion' but couldn't surf for crap.
BTW black also keeps you warmer which is why alot of people sport it.
Nice edit - too bad you don't know what a real wetsuit is. I'm sure you wear a white t-shirt and jeans everywhere too or have no graphics on your board. Go ahead and wear a black wetsuit and look like everyone else because no one will notice you surfing anyways. Regardless of color there is a reason why so many companies including Nike 6.0 have their suits made by Buell for their teams. Having a selection of adding a variety color is a plus in my opinion especially if you are surfing in crowded places and have a photog.
the edit is because I initially told you to f*ck off.
Nothing makes me stand out from the crowd more than the 3" Nike logo on my thigh and the sick flame graphics on the bottom of my board. That's what gets me noticed. The cameras go crazy for that stuff. My ability is just an afterthought.
If Nike really cared about making quality suits they would make a quality product themselves, not slap their name on someone else's product.
Nat Young rips, but all he's missing is the stormtrooper helmet and he could be cast in the next Star Wars movie.
