    Great Show David,
    I love how you stick it to Scott and made him your kook. Scott inspired me to #goleashless today and I am a better surfer for it , Yeah Guy !
    I enjoy hearing about the boards you both ride and how its motivated you to surf more and differently.
    May be a weekly segment “what I rode this week”
    I am really looking forward to your JMar interview next week, that was a fast turn around.
    keep up the good work !
    Super stoked on the show !

    First off, I’m so happy you guys have found your flow! I’m loving the combination of thoughtful insight and playful banter that goes back and forth between you two :)
    Second, if you guys are going to get nit-picky about pronunciations, this should set the score even between you two: Nazare is pronounced “na-za-ray”, and Scott’s “Na-zeere” isn’t even close. lol
    Third, I couldn’t help but start laughing at the “ape face” commentary! But then it got me to thinking.. for years people have been saying how Dane Gudauskas looks like (to some) a caveman. And Dane seems to think it’s just as funny as everyone else! Yes it’s somewhat derogatory to refer to someone as a lesser-evolved human (and in Otis’ case a primate), but it seems like in his circumstance it’s more likely just a hypersensitivity due to his race.. as no one is up in arms about Dane.
    Keep it up! You guys make me smile and laugh every week, and I always learn something from your shows. Absolutely awesome job! Thank you so much for giving us this gift and entertainment :) Cheers
