My reading comprehension was spot on.

You wrote what you wrote.

Maybe try again and pay attention to who I was responding too in regards to potential mutual friends. You can do this!

Didn’t think a little nostalgia (with a minor spelling error) over a past aquaintance would cause someone to get so pissy roflmao

Pretty sad state of affairs when two kooks, one from Oregon and one from wherever, have a voice in "surfing" affairs.

Let's settle this. Can someone please post the best clips of either of these two guys surfing.

So, based on the above clips, they are both competent surfers. Whoopidoo, 1/3 the surfers at my local surf that good. Why the fvck are these two kooks relevant?

One is wearing a god-awful yellow beanie in Orlando... the other, bragging about wearing Ralph Lauren shoes when someone asks if they are Vans.

Someone with obvious talent, like Curren or Gerlach, should be running those sites.

Surfing and writing, two different skill sets.

I'll take my surfing advice from Gerlach, but I'd rather be entertained by the writing of a writer like Chas.


All the sailors with their seasick mamas hear the sirens on the shore.

"Chas" is a random ding dong who sucked off someone for blog privileges. He's a nobody kook. Him and the other condom wrapper - wearing the yellow beanie, should have a suck-off.

It's precisely one of the reasons I like his writing. I enjoy the absurd.

This piece was genius:
https://www.surfer.com/surfing-magazine-...on-a-surf-trip/

The shit he wrote for STAB, especially when he was covering the ASP, was genius as well. To bad that material was wiped from STAB's website.

He's actually a former English professor who has written for major publications outside of surf.

"Born in San Jose, California in 1976, Smith’s family uprooted and landed in Coos Bay, Oregon where he learned to surf. After studying intercultural studies in undergrad, Smith graduated with a master’s in linguistics, going on to study in Egypt and at Oxford. Following a story he published in Australia Surfing Life about surfing in Yemen in the wake of 9/11, Smith went on to report in Lebanon, Somalia, Israel-Palestine, and wound up a captive of Hezbollah reporting for Current TV. In the early-aughts, Smith worked for Vice. Soon, he joined Stab magazine at the behest of Derek Rielly, then editor-in-chief, and they set in on an unparalleled era in surf journalism. Some of Stab’s more controversial content garnered unsavory public spats that earned Smith some anti-Semitic epithets, and then in 2014, Smith and Reilly began Beach Grit—a deep well of incendiary, tongue-in-cheek honesty drenched in satire, sans filter. He’s now a regular contributor to The Surfer’s Journal, with bylines at Esquire and Playboy, and the author of Paradise, Now Go to Hell, a cultural vignette of Oahu’s North Shore, which was a finalist for the PEN Center USA Award for Nonfiction."

aka Ashton Goggans

He's a former NSSA surfer from Nokomis, Florida and a former columnist at a local Sarasota Newspaper. He's also written advertising copy for TheGap clothing roflmao which is perfect considering STAB is now 90% advertorial.

They are both bitch clowns... Stab and Beachgrit are reduced to jokes until they pony up for real talent.

I think he was just a lecturer.

What they now call "part time temporary faculty."


incompetence is preferable to malice.

Adjunct Faculty is the term you're struggling for.

Ding Dong Kook is the more appropriate term.

I don’t get the hate. Sure, he’s a little rough around the edges but dude is a legit word slinger.

Given how many writers interested in writing about surfingdon’t have color, Chas has his own flavor. It’s harder to do than one would think.

As someone who almost failed the subject A requirement, only to get pushed through by my (adjunct) professor once he found out I wasn’t pursuing the literary arts, I can respect an individual creating their own written voice.

Chas has talent, whether you like the guy or not.

Still standing by that he looks like a total creeper in the supermarket.

I like Chas. I’ve read his books. Hope he writes about his Middle East adventure.

Turns out unbeknownst to Chas he got in David Lee Scales's face immediately prior lol. roflmao

Apparently his beef with David goes back a year ago to when David was contacted by a seemingly reluctant Orange Clownie Sheriff's deputy about the podcast. He told the sheriff it was a "non-altercation" in a physical sense between Chas and Ashton and that there was no way he would testify in court about it.

Later on his podcast he said in previous eras that kind of stuff would have never been taken to the cops and if it had the cops would have never gotten involved...and that the fact the cops even got involved over a non-incident shows how pussified society is becoming.

Apparently Ashton did not appreciate that and he tried to push David to come to blows with him over it at the trade show.

The trade show incident will be Ashton's legacy. Congratulations, Ashton.
