Thatís it. Iím touching Chasí face next time I spot him at Seaside.

Side note, Chas looks really creepy in real life. Like extra slimy but I think thatís what heís going for. His look is too intentional to be an accident.

Edit: I wonder how many boards Pyzel will sell because of this. Talk about a visit to surf expo paying off in terms of free PR.

Probably deserves a separate thread... but did you see Mid90s? (Also to manbearpig) I thought it was great and felt it hit closer to home than Kids.

I donít think so. I streamed it last week on Kodi but I think you can ďrentĒ for $5 on iTunes now. Like Kids, it really nailed all the skate nuances.

Looking forward to mid90s. Kind of surprised to hear you say that as most have been saying it didnít live up to kids but I bet itís a nostalgic thing for many.

Itís different and I think Jonah Hill admitted that too. Supposed to be more of an uplifting film about growth and coming of ageówhere as Kids is more nihilistic. I felt Mid90s was more emotionally heavy than Kids, if that makes sense. Itís still worth watching even if it doesnít live up to Kids.

I still want to see footage of Jonah Hill landing a kick flip.

Yeah thatís probably another issue with the reviews I heard. Itís obviously not a remake.

I could have sworn I saw a clip of him doing a kick flip, or maybe it was a funny edit to mess with people.

Because he's funny... hmmm, well if not funny, at least entertaining, He's a gifted writer with a sharp wit. And because he brings levity to a sport that takes itself too seriously. In fact IMO every sport takes itself too seriously. I think surfing is lucky have someone who is willing to take a punch to keep us entertained.

I will credit his writing style as entertaining. Not sure if heís knocking off someone else but surely a lot of surf writers are emulating him.

Wish he didnít have to strive for new content sometimes. It must be hard with all the doors that closed on him after the first couple years at BG. When BG was new, it was worth reading. Now, itís more like click bait or STAB with more ads.

To be fair, STAB pretty much poached his writers (who may or may not have been paid sufficiently). Just wish BG didnít have such invasive ads.

Him and others give the mainstream surf media a hard time for catering to the industry. But, he's become an example of what happens when you don't.

I think it was Hunter.
Damn, did you also skate with Mike Perietti? I used to date his little sister and hung with that crew (mostly Zoo Yorkers) sometimes.
