    Food For thought..
    If John John gets sick of losing and quits the WSL to go free surf, and With Kelly, Joel , Mick and Taj all looking towards retirement, Would the Tour be Worth Watching anymore?? I guess my point is at this stage in his Career, I think the WSL needs JJF more then JJF needs the WSL??

    I knew I recognised those samples! I think you guys might be interested in this article about Paak, involves a few surf references: http://noisey.vice.com/read/noisey-next-anderson-paak-malibu

    Album is growing on me but I’m undecided if he’s my kook of the week or not.

    Many thanks for the podcasts, i live on the gold coast of Australia and a desk job here is comparable to the Japanese drip method.

    Thanks again, keep up the great pod.

    Please can we get Scott to stop calling Italo ‘Italian Ferrari”?
    Not witty, not funny.
    Unless you’d laugh at Got cash / Hot pash / Cock smash.
    Just give him a little backhander each time he does it?
    Thanks DLS!
