    What does that even mean Yankmee? Are you a "core surfer?" I work on my core when I'm not surfing.

    Hell, for that matter: Julian(a) Wilson and Kolohe (Chloey) Andino style wetsuits. White on the right half of your body and creamcicle doo doo orange on the left.

    Gotta dispute this, at least in this instance. A buddy of mine was living in a shoebox apt. in Manhattan and wanted a longboard to learn on and bought a pope bisect. Could never have fit a longboard in his apt. but the thing got him in the water and he successfully learned and now has a proper quiver. Pretty situation-specific, but I think for a lot of these things (maybe even the frog gloves) there might be times when we can't use the blanket kook label.

    Yeah, two-tone wetsuits lack style.

    i think it's hysterical how clean-cut & just-like-everyone-else matt wilkinson used to be...look at footage from the 2007 search contest in chile. short hair, no bizarre one-off wetsuits.

    Homophobia is lame. Seriously. Its the 21st Century, its time to evolve.

    Also lame: Boards made in China. The skull n crossbones era of surf clothes in the late 90's and the hardcore overly serious attitude that followed. How seriously should you be taken if your sport involves wearing booties?

    Well, it wasn't aimed at anyone in particular it just happened to end up posted after one of your posts.
    As for your question, I'd say your defensive reaction & name-calling are self-explanatory.

    As for your core....TMI, sparky....you may want to look up the NJShredMachine & have a bench-off.

    I don't see any mention of homosexuality in the original post. It sounds to me like you're the one stereotyping! Just saying...

    lyca surf shorts (I'm talking about the cycling style shorts of the late 80s)
    ultra short boardshorts
    front foot traction pads
    go pros

    Did I miss anything? (I'm sure there is some really wild stuff from the 60s and 70s.
    And finally the worst product ever produced by any and all surf companies ever...... Crowds.
