Essentially ride the lowest volume board possible and swim into waves with giant swim fins

Come the fvck on already foreheadslap crazy2 roflmao

Greenough was stand up surfing decades ago prior to riding kneeboards.

You're trolling again.
You got any proof?


There's either one of two things going on:

A)You don't know the readily available facts... yet have decided to make authoritative statements on a subject.

or

B)You're trolling by stating information you know is false.

I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt and hoping it's option B.

Yes.

a) The man spent his early years standing up on surfboard and surfed = SURFER.
b) The man spent many years riding kneeboards and spoons and ripping on them = SURFER
c) The man lived and breathed surfing lived and in his car and the bush all around Australia through the 1960s surfing = SURFER
d) Riding kneeboards = SURFING. If there's any doubt in anyone's mind it's because of the bubble they live in. There is plenty of documentation of kneeboarding's glory days in old isssues of ER and ING (as if that matters but the images are great). And a kneeboarder ripping a good wave is a beautiful thing to behold.

I could go on but I'll stop there.

From what i could find, that article was written by either Mike or Kerry who run the website that is called "Weekend Hippie" that posted the article. They are a Santa Barbara couple. The quote they used (which you're referring to) was by a man named Arlen Knight from Santa Barbara, and oddly enough the internet shows there was a census done in 1940 that shows a boy named Arlen Knight who was 11 in 1940 that lived at 1000 San Diego Rd., Santa Barbara, CA 93103. Which means this kid would have been around the same age as Greenough in the late 50's early 60's (maybe a little older).

Seems legit??

I will take Matt Warshaw's word.

I will take Greenough's word.

I will take the image of him as a child with a surfboard as evidence as well.

And I will reiterate.

Even if he had never stood up - despite the fact we know he DID stand up - and wouldn't matter.

He is/was a surfer, more than 99% of people on this forum will ever be surfers.

You should watch "The Innermost Limits of Pure Fun" It is full of pure unadulterated surfing and culture the way things used to be when it seems they were a while lot better. Then watch "Crystal Voyager" for a little glimpse into George's life.

Amazing humans that existed before Instagram, the WSL, Kelly's pool, and all the other bullshit.

You guys are wasting your breath.

When you've taken up surfing in the last 5 years or so, and you wanna argue b/c you read it on the interwebz, then you have this place. #adultlearner #kookstoke

Crystal Voyager will always be one of the greatest surf films ever made. I remember watching it as a kid in my bodyboarding days and thinking, "I wanna get some of those!"
