Sissyfish in The Surfer's Journal


I woke up this morning to pick up my new board from Fed Ex and logged on long enough to find that one of my all-time favorite magazines, The Surfer's Journal, is doing a column on surf blogs. And in the new issue, Sissyfish is featured with a screen shot and everything! It cracked me up when the author described my failed surf missions and wondered if I'd ever score. Thinking back, I realized that in 175 posts over the course of 2 years, I've probably only written about 10 epic days. But this morning I found out that I'm in TSJ and that I have an amazing new stick. So I guess I scored twice!

Nash said...

Rad, now let's work on getting the adventures of a surfing lawyer in there! Post some board pics, or maybe you should host a new board night with a surf flic and brews.

Wow, congrats! Not to keep fuelling your ego but Sissyfish was the blog that finally inspired me to start one...

...Ok so now I really do need something from you for my next zine.

Chum said...

Thanks dudes. I have to also give credit to Confessions of a Novice Surfer, who basically got me started on this surf blog thing on June 15, 2005 (anniversary coming!).

Chum said...

And I've been thinking of that drawing for the 'zine the last couple days. I hate to miss deadlines!!

ras said...

nice Chum. Now you just gotta watch your site meter soar.

can't wait to see photos of you on the new 2+1.

Shaaaawing!

Thanks for the pic & the fact I could read it. Still haven't got mine, no luv for the brada in NE.

Surprised E's didn't get props? Def my inspiration. Guys been at it for a while.

I hope you keep getting skunked though : )

Gaz said...

Congrats on the SJ inclusion, good work!

Whiffleboy said...

Very cool, Chum! Thanks for the shout out, btw. :-)

Mine will never grace the pages of SJ as I'm the K-Mart of surfblogs and fly in the face of the soulful content that mag perpetuates.

Slim said...

E's got dissed. I enjoy his blog more than any other. Shredables.

On another note...somebody had to take this angle, so here's my lame attempt......

Oregon ain't no fuckin' whore house for you to pimp! Oregon locs hate you!!

Chum said...

Slim, you like E's more than mine. Douche! Locals are losers.

Wiff, don't sell yourself short, man. You're more of a Target than a Big K. ;-)

Slim said...

E's got lots of pictures and updates everyday. I'm a sucker for constant attention. Nothing against the douche-fish, of course.

Locals aren't lame when they know you!

Chum said...

depends in what context they know you in. and I was just kidding with the lame comment, btw. I just got vibed at a "secret spot" yesterday and it put a damper on my first couple waves. bad taste in my mouth, but I give locals due respect.

The Slim guy has been surfing for what 3 years? And he's giving you vibe and posing, give me a break.

Nash said...

Hmmm, I wonder how that guy knew you had only been surfing three years Slim. He must have seen your bottom turns! har de har.

Anonymous said...

uhhh I think slim was kidding, but I agree she's not a whore, please respect

and that's comming from someone who's been surfing for 15+, if that makes any diff at all

vibing comes with the territory, deal or dont surf, no offense

G said...

TSJ...no way jose. Just reward for a great site. Keeps my Oregons in good shape down here in Cali.

Chum said...

Slim's my chum. We give eachother crap all the time. As evidence of that, you can check out his own blog about surfing in Oregon. If blogs make the ocean a whore, I guess we're all dipping our wicks at the same brothel. I like to think of the sea as more of a prized mistress anyway (I'm already married). I'll keep respecting it - you'd be a moron not to.

Slim said...

ha, ha, ha, I totally got called out! I love internet vibing! Can you see my stink eye right now, anon? humor is always mis-taken through the web.

dipshit said...

I've been surfing for 16+ days so if anyone's gonna vibe anyone...
