Thank you for spreadin' the love, er, stoke. Got me thinkin'... If i were your lawyer i would win your case because you are right. Me and my kind are a bunch of hypocrites because we all benefitted in one way or another from the marketing, or what we call the commercialization and/or exploitation of our pure 'sacred' sport. My malibu heroes lance carson and dora had malibu crew wrecked by it. Gidget/frankie&annette brought hordes of kooks, it made them nuts, literally, but they made $$$ from it. Hypocrites. Stunt doubles in said movies, cash for surf magazine features, signature board models, etc..just like obrien gravy only these guys today aren't hypocrites like them. And my other two heroes are king complainers talk out of both sides of their mouths, too, greenough and wayne lynch, all the way to the bank. My hypocrisy is the benefits from the income generated and put into surfing led to the advancements being mass-produced and therefore readily accessible to plain ole me. Plus if i think it's kooky but they are ridfing waves and having fun that makes me the kook. 100%. Even if it looks really stupid. How'd i do? You win, kanman. Case closed.
