    I love your new collaboration with Scott Bass to revive Surf Talk, but I couldn’t disagree with you more about cutting down on the ASP commentary. There is already a dirth of independent, insightful and timely analysis of the current happenings of the ASP and you guys decreasing your focus would extinguish the only good avenue for this that I know of. Please don’t mistake the major surf media’s failures in appropriately covering the ASP (they’re still beholden to the surf brands to truly have their own journalistic freedoms) or the general economic malaise of the industry as a whole for a lack of demand in ASP talk. As you guys discussed on the podcast, the ASP (despite all of its flaws) represents the best in competitive surfing and the best talent in the sport overall. These things should be celebrated with the proper focus and not shunned or be embarrassed for. Highlighting the concept of the “surfing lifestyle” might seem great for a color magazine or website, but is awfully boring in a long-form commentary podcast. Besides, we’re already getting enough images of the lifestyle surfer in prime time commercials for credit cards, erection pills, hamburger chains, etc.
