While lowers can be a bit boring

It gives us the viewer a nice consistent wave to make our own judgement on

He can do lots of moves on one wave

It would take 1 year to do a review if he surfed El Porto Pottie

I can see both sides. I completely see your point but at least for the grovelers I would prefer to see some waves in really small shit surf. 80 percent of the waves he rides on grovelers at lowers I'd be on my every day shortboard and I'm a kook.

Agree. The guy absolutely rips, and looks like a 'natural' surfer, as opposed to someone who's had to work really hard on it.

Funny that the smaller board (with ridiculously low volume, imho) looked perfect for him, while Noel S still could benefit from more board (again, imho).

Board looked really good. How did Xanadu drop off the radar?

El Porto looked pretty epic today! You could probably do a sick review in 1 day! haha.

When guys rip too hard in these reviews I dont find it very helpful because they probably rip on anything

I like that Aussie guy Craigs review the best because he is mortal

I surfed against Max Hoshino in college NSSA's, which were surprisingly competitive. I always liked his style and am stoked to see him appear out of thin air still shredding.

He took a year off before med school to compete on the 'QS, not sure how far he got in the ratings.

Living in Florida, these waves are all hilariously good.

The onshore chest-head high section fests Benny's Mini Me goes out in; I f-----g dream of March for a couple days like that. Just a couple days with speed to burn, a lip, and zero kooks on boards they can't duck dive.

Salsa is a hobbit and appears to frequent mid-week Lowers. Yeah, if I could get a peak takeoff with a tapered wall bending at me, in the stomach-head high range....yeah.

It's like SBD said. I'm thinking about boards in conditions like one or two of the Japanese lost videos, or that recently posted Curren clip at knee high pier waves.

mfw taking fins and nuggets to board and bong pre-surf if Slopteenth Ave North has conditions for most "grovel board" reviews:

Ha surfed against him too. One of those guys that can get in a rhythm and do like 6 turns on a waist high wave. IIRC he surfed for UCSD.

Keep in mind he's mid-late 30's vs Noel whose got to be mid late 40's.

Yes, this is what I was told as well.

I do not understand the thinking behind doing it this way.
