He's talking about getting paidDid anybody listen to Joel tudor on surf splendor? I made it to the ten minute mark before i was over it.Not sure where he gets the viewing numbers, but i looked at wsl Ig longboard posts and didn’t see anything with higher views compared to shortboards.
Longboarders get paid less than shortboarders... What he really said was that female longboarders get paid less than female shortboarder, which sparked this huge controversey with the WSL and his sponsors. I think it's crazy that the WSL contacted Joel's sponsors in an attempt to shut him up!
I think the WSL has done a disservice to surfing as a whole. If they are considered the authoritative body, or governing body of professional surfing, the image they are creating is a lame one and far from a true representation of who professional surfers really are.
