did you forget to leave out that he rapes small kittens?
Patagonia has no problem associating itself Yvon Chounard (burns people surfing, prevents Argentinians from having electricity, blocks access to his private lands while claiming to be the champion of public lands, flys private jets, donates to politicians that closed beaches and had surfers arrested) so why would this be a problem for them?
Yvon burns you Duffy? Isn't he 100 years ole and ya can beat up Tyson:trout:

It’s possible Lopez sold the rights to his name awhile ago and has little to no control in how it’s used.
While that is possible, its much more likely that he just likes the money.
He's probably been living off endorsements for 1/2 a century.
Much easier than shaping for an income anyway.

Just funny how his name is still held in high regard despite such deals.

Do you guys have any inkling of how he's getting paid by Patagonia?

I don't blame him at all.

In fact, I say thank god a surfer is getting some of that CostCo soft-top money as opposed to just a Chinese conglomerate that churns out Wavestorms.

That G-Lo comment above is pure gold, by the way.

And first rule of the R@^¢#: Don't talk about the R@^¢#.

saw these boards at costco today. it is really strange. just weird. lots of people checking them out. he's milking it into retirement for sure! may as well at this point, surfing is beyond sold out.

I guess it's an improvement? Since hopefully a legend is getting some cash out of the deal?
