What next?

I saw this video a day or two ago and I think it is bad and disrespects the polynesian culture and nature.

Anything for a click and $$$$.

this might be the best video ever. cause now people will realize that things need to be reigned in a bit...maybe a lot.

All this talk sounds the same as years back when somebody showed up at a cloud break, with a friend on a jet ski, to get towed in to a wave...Over time, shit just becomes the norm, until the next guy one ups, and is the new hot shit. From the tune here, everybody should go back to wearing malo, surfing on alaia, and burn your unlimited OC-6...I'm cool with that.

i think a fair comparison would be fitting a V6 with a four stroke motor and wheels. then ripping through your local library while making sure to run over the books... but not actually reading them.

if that's your thing, go for it.

jc...yes, that would suck. On top of upsetting the library-goers, my daughter who loves Curious George, and canoe purists alike. However, I just can't see how it's all that different from having 20 jet skis at Teahupoo, towing 20 guys, riding 20lb 5ft boards. Some would argue that's progression, some exploitation. I don't think anyone has to worry about 20 guys on a 2stroke KTM at their line up anytime soon tho...For whatever it's worth, I just thought this stunt was cool. Apparently so did Raimana VB, who was the lead surf consultant for the stunt.

I was serious about rocking a malo...

everyone makes mistakes i guess.

i saw a kid wearing a malo at the Lihu‘e costco the other day. he was the coolest person there when it was 90º with 100% humidity and zero tradewinds.
