    speak for yourself.

    as for brett - i have this advice:

    next year, when you want votes again, try something different than" now you will be doing things for me"
    approach.

    I'm surprised Gesslers video didn't have a monologue at the end of it

    I'm not registered to vote, but i voted for Brett. I'm really detached from all that, but I mean, come on, might as well help the guy out.

    I heard Balaram Stack is a cool dude in the water...read that several times in different places.

    Asking for confirmation from another man is gay.

    RadBrad, I think it is a very close call on the two waves.

    I think the hard part about this contest and why folks are tripping on Brett's approach is it will come down to a popularity contest. The "begging" part....although if you re-read Brett's post, he was super polite about it.

    Anyway, it will come to past and someone is getting 20Gs!!!!!!

    He is a cool dude. I've know him since he was 12 years old and he's always been cool.

    Massive Reply List

    I'm not sure what you mean about the New Yorkers… And I don't disagree that the whole "vote for me" thing is lame. But if asking for votes can help me win some money, to pay some bills, then I'll put my pride aside. That's the only thing that would keep me from asking, and Pride is rarely ever a good thing. I really wish they decided the winner differently so it didn't come down to "vote for me" campaigns between guys competing for the lead.

    I come on here to spread word of the contests i'm in, or videos i've made, to share with anyone that doesn't know about them, and I'm sorry if it comes off differently. I'm not bummed on anyone posting they voted for Gesler. I like that they're honest, and respect that they don't just vote for someone cause they were asked to, but vote on what they think is the best. That's how it should be. I post on here hoping to gather some votes from people that didn't know the contest was going on, and to spread word of the comp, so that GoPro continues to run it.

    I'm not trying to "use" anyone for votes. I came and posted to swellinfo to hopefully gather some votes from those who didn't know the comp was going on. I may have asked to vote for me, but I'll never be upset at those who don't.

    I am sorry you're bummed about my lack of Thanks after the Grudge Match. I did come on here and reply "Thanks for all the support", but that was before it was officially over. Fisher and I were incredibly appreciative for everyones help in getting us close to winning. I'll try and be better about coming back to swellinfo and spreading thanks after things like this, instead of just Facebook and social media. I just didn't think about it after we lost.

    Lastly… I don't aimlessly burn people over and over when theres surf. I'm not sure where you heard that.

    I would happily buy someone a soda or some sweet tea if I was ever at the same restaurant.

    Like I've said above… I'm not hating on anyone who votes for someone other than me because there are some insane clips on there, that I think are better than mine. I'm just sharing word of the comp since i'm in it, and hoping to gather some votes in the process.


    TO THOSE OF YOU WHO VOTED FOR ME…
    Thank you for taking the time to go over to surfline, wait for the ad, and then vote. :)

    TO THOSE THAT VOTED FOR GESLER…
    Thanks for at least going on the site and voting for someone! I'm all about people showing support regardless of who it's for.

    Yeah, it is a strange approach. It is GoPro marketing their devices. Narcissism at its best.
