In Chaz's defense his North Shore book was a great read.

Surf Spendor's interview with Derek Hynd is beyond epic. The bit where he described the surf incident that cost him his sight in one eye will shock you, make you laugh, grimace and groan all within 20 minutes...

For sure that was one - but there was someone else... i thought it was parmenter or timmy patterson but i think i'm wrong on both counts. it was someone who i didn't expect to take a digital approach to order management, for whatever reason.

the spreadsheet system seems like take a lot of work. order cards with QR's an some dedicated phones in the shop to snap pictures at each step might fit the workflow better / give better results

Damn the eye story with Derek Hynd is crazy.

^ seriously.

I love the guys and am very grateful too for the content... that said, the latest one with Devin and Chas was a cringeathon. christ from the foil opinions to hearing them say "Le QWA" (La Croix) over and over again, jesus.

It's actually pronounced "shit" cause it sucks and I don't understand why people like it.

I liked it. Made me laugh. They're not taking things seriously. They're just shooting the shit and taking the piss!

He is a kook. There's a video of him at Kelly's ranch and he can barely pump down the line.


The wave you're referring to shows him surfing better than 75% of the people in the water.

Would you go balls out on what was your first of maybe 2 or 3 waves at the Surf Ranch?

No. You would take it easy and get a feel, than maybe a barrel at the end like Chas.

Chas has surfed since he was a kid. He grew up in Coos Bay. So my guess is he isn't a kook or an adult learner but a surf addict.


Quote:
Now that I know he can't surf, it makes all his BS he spews even more bs. Like some people that post here. rolleyes


What has Chas spewed that's BS?

From what I've heard most people in surfing outside of WSL management/investors and the STAB advertorial group like the guy.

Even if someone is just cruising, it's easy to tell if they can surf or not. He clearly can't. Have another video of him?

His strong opinions mean as much as Erik Logan's. Adult learner, Johnny come lately kook stoke.
