Toyz for Toobz


Today I uncovered an amazing subculture on youtoob: videos of remote control surfers. Brocrastinating (as usual), I pushed the play button and my jaw dropped. Part of me wonders if the video is fake, part of me wonders how a stupid plastic toy can surf so well, and the other part ponders if music can be any more "farfengroovin" than the soundtrack provided by "Natural Aphrodisiac." At any rate, this could be may fastest route to getting a spitting barrel, if my progression as a surfer continues to skid like it has this winter!

Chum, Chum, Chum...

Please do not get one of these...

But if you do...

Do not "surf it" north of Cannon Beach.

There's a nice point off of Ross Island when the tugs go by.

my buddy scotty up here in NS had one. he was getting good at controlling it too. then one day the remote control stopped working as he was heading out to sea and the damn thing kept right on going towards the horizon. best to keep it simple I reckon and paddle in under your own power.
