    Ultimate surfing fad for summer '12

    It seems like every year or so there's always a surfing fad that defines the summer. This year it's the... Go Pro Camera!

    The water temp is getting more tolerable, and I'm seeing more and more people paddling around. I have also noticed more Go-Pros and Go-Pro mounts on noses than I've seen in the last couple of years. Last year I only saw 1 guy with one.

    Not ranting, trolling, making fun, or complaining, so relax. I think the cameras are a good investment, and can be used for other outdoor activities. I just noticed this trend along with the unfamiliar faces in the line-ups. I think the Hero HD is around $299, but I am also itching for a new board so this may have to wait, if I have some Tax Refund $ left, I may also bite the bullet.

    Go Pros changed the game for shooting water footage. For people that want to catalog and edit/share their waves, its definitely cool.

    Idiotic board art will be it. Actually, not art, but stupid writing. Lots of kids have phrases written their boards that are some kind of inside joke or something. It's obnoxious. If you have nothing creative, leave it alone. I hate summer.

    Thanks McLovin, you've already got me dreading it.

  6. Haha! What happened to classy resin tints and super clean pinlines? Now it's scribble all the stupid sh*t you have in your head with whatever writing utensil you can find... Less than 2 months til Memorial Day fellas!

  7. resin tints and pinlines are for ***gots

    Ha!

    Writing random nothings on boards is by no means "new." I remember kids doing it in the 90's, like most other fads these days--they are just recycled from the past and represent a complete lack of originality and creativity.

  10. Wierd board art has been a fad since the 80s, nothing new. And just because your like me and you suck at it, you shouldnt feel bad about painting boards. **** everyone else, Do what you want and have fun. Wanna mount 50 go pros to your markered up boards, go ahead, and while youre at it snake the kook that is hating.
