120 – Surf News, February 16, 2016

Play

So much surf news! Big waves smashed Mavericks and Jaws, but not Waimea. Did Quik know? Was it all a hoax? Also, lots of green talk this week; Fergal Smith runs for the Green Party, KS Wave Co goes solar powered, and big-biz overdevelops Cali’s coast. And let’s not forget about Dukes, Kooks, and Must-See Moments. Can you handle this show? Try!

The Eddie got the Yellow light, then the Red light, but did they ever even intend to get Green light conditions? You’ll have to listen to to get the answer.

    Glad to have found your podcast, found it through the William Finnegan conversation, and been listening ever since. Thanks also for the Chas Smith book recommendation, couldn’t put that down.

    Bummed that you guys didn’t mention the Eddie Aikau 30 for 30 in this week’s discussion! One of the best ever!
