    A great edition of surf news this week, despite efforts from what sounded like a rogue gardener with a lawnmower trying to sabotage the outdoor broadcast!

    Thanks for the show guys.

    Quote of the year from Scott Bass RE: The fox business new interview of Paul Speaker you guys talked about in episode #94.

    “…quite frankly I’m not sure Paul Speaker can swim, I know he can’t surf and I don’t think he should be the figurehead for the WSL in these situations.”

    Funny and right on the mark.

    I love what the WSL guys have put together in terms of the online content and I think it will only get better. But that interview really sheds a lot of light on the fact that this sport, hobby, passion is so hard for anyone to relate to for anyone that does not have a real connection to it.

    The show is great, and I appreciate the effort you guys both put in to it!
