    On soundtracks…
    George Greenough would probably invent a new musical instrument, build it himself and change music forever…
    just like he did surfing. He’s the first guy to take us inside the tube and bring us out.
    TR’s the first guy to show us how to get above the wave. He looks to me to be landing it big time.
    Loved the Podcast. Really great format to “get inside someones head and take a look around”

    Music is subjective and especially regarding soundtrack. I don’t like dub-step used with surfing, you do. Cool. Don’t really see any hypocrisy in stating my opinion on what I feel works with surfing and what doesn’t. I’ll bet Greenough and his generation, since you mentioned them, (and a lot of surfers of all ages), like any good surfing soundtrack music from any era to present day, regardless of the year it was produced. It’s not a generational thing. I never liked Offspring, Pennywise and most of the Momentum Generation soundtracks. And I love REAL punk rock. Most of those whiney post- “punk” soundtracks were just as hiddy as the industrial Dub Step soundtracks used today.

    Another great episode, especially the Costa Freaka jungle background effects. Super nostalgic. Keep up the positivity and professionalism. Gotta disagree, that Dubstep edit is sick. Especially like the juxtaposition between the slowmo video and tempo of the song. Created a rad tension. Have a hard time no pointing out the possible hypocrisy of the momentum generation hating on the dubstep concept. Think about what George Greenough and the psychedelic rock generation thought of those Taylor Steele films back in the day. Looking forward to the next sans Bass episode.
