How about some clever designs on your boring black booties? Poseidon took Jack O’Neill’s eye for inventing the leash and he was a real waterman, what’s Davey Jones gonna do to someone who profanes the ocean in this manner? Go slap some pastel, patches on the sides of your board, right next to your multi-colored stomp pad. The only designs I want to see on booties are the ones on bikini bottoms. JUICY, capiché? Keep whining about how people are mean to you because your post says, do my work for me, be my focus group ‘cause I have nothing else to post about, give me, give me, give me; help me get an A on my project and prove that there’s a market for surf wear on the golf course or plaid booties. Here’s a secret, there’s a market for everything; whether there should be or not. Take all we can, leave nothing left G’YARR ; we’re marketing pirates, I’ll take a double decaf espresso soy chai latte. Dude, we need engineers, researchers and doctors in this company, I mean country. Not someone trying to sell us a different color of booty.
Post a surf story about how you got robbed in Nicaragua, how Carver racks come loose, where the best hostel is in Biarritz, what’s the best way to get the crap you just dumped in the line up out of your wetsuit, whether or not to wax every time you paddle out, why wearing a leash is like wearing a rubber (thanks Lee), why a 6’8” Biscuit is the surfboard equivalent of the Ford Edsel (where you on that marketing team), how to stream heats on demand from your computer to your TV, how to help people affected by Sandy, the ultimate OCMD paddle out or why if you drink coffee in the morning, you will need to take a deuce.
Legendary surfer Butch Van Artsdalen
Butch Van Artsdalen Biography and Photos
Butch became a lifeguard at Pipe in the '70s, a position he would hold until his untimely death. Disheartened by the ever-growing presence of posers and rowdy groms who were in his opinion ruining the sport, he became gradually more cynical. He saw the sport's purity vanishing in the face of outsiders and was deeply resentful of crowds in the water and on the beach. A binge drinker since his teenage years, he eventually drank himself to death in 1979. A huge service was held at Pipe in his honor and his ashes were scattered over the lineup.
Will there be a place set at the Golden Hall in Valhalla for you? Will your ashes ever be scattered at Pipe?

Anybody on here actually golf? Seems kinda antithetical to surfing to me, but different strokes for different folks.

Ah... everybody hates everybody again! Just like old times! Three day weekend and a 1/2 day work today. I'm going surfing. I don't care if it's ankle high slop, I'll be out paddling. Be supportive of each other while I'm gone. Yeah, right...
All I know is, my booties tend to wear out pretty quick and so do my hoods. I'm always looking for good-quality booties, not duds, but ones that are comfortable and wear well and are warm for the winter. Likewise, hoods. I wouldn't mind having a back-up pair of booties - will they come in different mm thicknesses? And will their be an online site for the Van's stuff? Or a bunch of sites through retail. I like it if it's easy to order.

I think there is a market for Vans Golf Shoes, but it may be pretty limited. I'm not a believer in fashion over function, so you better make sure that your shoes can compete with other brands on the market. Personally, I think the golfing market may not have enough room for a fashion statement. Off the bat, your target audience will primarily be those living the Ridgemont High glory days & the occasional youthful golfer. I truly think you have a better chance with the booties. If some wetsuits have colors/themes, then the bootie market can surely support some sort of "flair." I would never wear a flashy suit, but I would wear Misfit skeleton suit gloves.
Keep flexing your digital guns.
