What guys who don't surf much do in their spare time. Besides blogging.


For those who don't know, there's a colossal circle jerk online called the Oregon Surf Pages (mentioned in this video) where a bunch of doods sit around bragging about how "sick" the surf was yesterday and dissing anything that isn't wrapped in buffalo check flannel and Carharts. Rumor has it that a couple of the wannabe bro-brahs that hang there actually do other kinds of surfing than the internet variety.

But even the Pacific Gyre has a gem floating in it once in a while. Someone told me about this video and I had to actually brave the high fecal chloroform levels there to check it. I'm glad I did.

By the way, I think the bespectacled guy in this video might be partially based on yours truly. I love Mollusk and all kinds of impractical equipment... but I don't wear horn rims.

No one in Oregon surfs much right now.

You have to be kidding. It wasn't based on you, mate. The creator himself, has shopped at Mollusk and also has owned some of the board types in question. Not to mention, the the dig it takes at the OSP... You're not the center of the Oregon surf scene... No need to be so bloody sensitive.

Crikey... Perhaps, I really should do a Sissyfish version...

Not even partially? Damn.

As far as making a Sissyfish version, I'd be "honoured."

Pete?

Youre the self-righteous douche bag Sissy. If internet forums are circle jerks this is pure fucking masturbation. Get a life dude or at least some waves.

Chum said...

Can I take that as directed at me or would that be considered being a sensitive artist type.

Yeah, Me. No offense intended and honestly I was not thinking of you. Not that I don't think of you on cold evenings, when I'm alone in my house, the surfs blown out and I'm front of the computer. Just you, me, the glow of monitor and so on....

And, I am as kooky as anyone. And I have a Mollusk T-shirt. And I live East of the Nike campus...

Sorry

Pete

Man. Seriously. Don't be sorry. That was the funniest (and best-written) thing I've seen in a very long time! All the others pale in comparison.

I may be extra sensitive because I'm sitting here on a Saturday morning in front of the monitor, working for the man, instead of "getting some waves" as hater#1000 must be doing right now.

You're one of the only dudes I know capable of pulling off that kind of satire in such an easy-to-misinterpret forum as this. I do admit to not catching on a year or so ago, though!

Wow, heavy venting. Must be high and dry lately. That feels good doesn't it? Telling us how you really feel. Best post in a while. I dig it. Plus FP's vid is classic.

BTW, I was also digging the north coast pics and fall surf updates "bragging about how "sick" the surf was yesterday". Really, 'cuz I miss it.

Chum said...

Fer sher. Guilty as charged. Thus the title of this post!

Great article you got here. It would be great to read more concerning that theme.
By the way check the design I've made myself Russian escorts

Chum said...

Things to do when it gets unsurfable? How 'bout the "theme" of Russian escorts? That comment pretty much takes the cake...
