Wow, if I'm wrong on the Christian rock thing, I apologize.

The combination of generic melodies with uplifting lyrics genuinely had me fooled.

Although I'm still suspicious that some of these bands are secretly Christian and they're trying to infiltrate our minds with positive thought. And that is something I just won't stand for shameonyou

I don’t like his slogan about grabbing my favorite drink at the beginning of every segment.

Very Ryan Seacreature esq.

What can I say. I’ve grown tired of the production. Needs to mix things up season to season. Much easier to fast forward through it than watch beginning to end its that predictable.

Salsa's bleached crotch jeans are fantastic. I had trouble focusing on the review.

If you like a slow, stiff ride, try this board as a single fin...

Evil Twin looked pretty fun to me. If I ordered it, I'd ask them to just put a FCS box for the trailer - don't need the single fin box.

If he started shitcanning boards and surfing different spots it'd be more interesting.

I think the lack of positive language in the review OP posted is his version of shitcanning the Evil Twin.

He won't come right out and say it, but he telegraphs his real feelings for boards through his effusiveness or lack there of for the design.

He struggles on anything not a thruster. Needs more steph gilmore, less QS warrior.

He shitcanned the Rusty Chew Toy a while back. There hasn't been a Rusty on his channel since.

You can't exactly shit can a board because the manufacturer is paying you to review them. These are basically infomercials and I don't mean that in a negative way. Coincidentally I think the one manufacturer that would be open to negative criticism would be Mayhem.

One way that I think he could give an honest review is to do his show and then at the end of the show or on his website give an overall numerical grade for each board. Scale is 1-10. Chew Toy would be a 4. Cymatic or Rocket Wide a 9.2 or something.

Probably learned a lesson about what happens when not treating the labels he relies on for content with kid gloves.

His site does have a star rating for the boards and various attributes.
