i wish i could surf like noel salsa. best reviews on the web. glad he is doing these and consistently too.

what's the alternative, benny's boardroom bs where benny never shows any surfing and he's riding gigantic boars. i stopped watching those or listening to anything that guy has to say. no help.

mini-me craig does great reviews too and I trust them. also a good surfer as well.

the real watersports guy does legit reviews too with honest feedback.

noel is tops though. ripper shredding on new rides every week. keep it up noel! jam_on

10 seconds of Craig Anderson on his big yellow single fin excites me much more, even though I'm not a Craig fan or singley lover.

Noel, should you read this, just disregard my ramblings. Apologies.


Noel would agree with you in the comparison since he knows he's no Craig Anderson. I don't think his surfing is lifeless though.I'm sure NS's surfing more impressive in person when he catches a good one, especially on his real board. (Please don't show me video of myself, I'm not Noel either but I'd be stoked if I was, only surfing wise, my hair game much stronger than his)

Part of the whole point for his reviews is that his surfing is relevant yet he still surfs pretty good.

If Noel is 10 times better and you say lifeless and boring, you must be? smile

He's not my most favorite either but on what scale would we put that hipster Craig?

I think Noel surfs GREAT but I do understand what Maz is saying.
He is very clinical? for lack of a better term. Predictable might be a better term.
He does everything well and maximizes each wave, but sometimes I'd like him to go for something a bit more wild?
Then again, I will pass up several good turns to do one bigger one often. Its just different styles.
He surfs WAY better than me, i just am commenting on his approach.


Rumour is that Slater has a full-size tattoo of himself over his entire body

He surfs like a QS warrior.

If he wasn’t surfing a new stick every episode I’d be hard pressed to tune in to his edits.

Doesn’t mean he sucks at surfing, I can only watch 3 snaps to the beach so many times.

Guys there is a bit of a sad dynamic here -- "I cant surf like Noel but I dont like his surfing" -- unfortunately if you arent able to do those maneuvers than its also impossible for you to appreciate his surfing. Yah fine, his backside blow tail is not like Dane's... but he can do that maneuver. Its alot harder to do one that is wild and out of control looking than in control... Guaranteed 100% more impressive when he is coming down the line at you than on video. Anyone who has surfed in person with pros will also understand this dynamic
