The 1st annual Waves Not Graves Surf-a-palooza: Gun Control, Not Fun Control!
August 10, 2013 at the Honeyton Beach Pier in Honeyton, Cali
12pm til Whenever!
HONEYTON - In the wake of an epidemic that's spread across the online surfing community, the grassroots organization Friends of Swell Info (FOSI) have banded together in an effort to unite surfers across the Internet and deescalate their aggro tendencies during summer flatness. The festival will feature live music by various commercial hip-hop artists and seminars from some of the online surf community's premier personalities.
The goal of Waves Not Graves is to raise public awareness about the dangers of holding in surf rage and not finding proper outlets for its release. The summer (or "verano" as it's called in gnarly destinations) and its typically non-surfable conditions have been known to elicit depressive symptoms in otherwise stoked surfers and can cause them to act out with threats of violence, as recently exhibited by rogues such as rcarter and waterbaby. Signs of possible surf rage are verbal outbursts such as "Get off my peak!" and "Meet me at my break!", as well as name-calling like "douche" and "beta".
The Surfrider Foundation has been rumored to be named an event sponsor, however, an unnamed source within the organization claims that surfing the Internet lies outside their mission of protecting oceans, waves, and beaches. FOSI expects their inaugural event to cleanse the shores and waters of rant and rage.
