This isn’t a paid advertisement, but Surf Shop Box sent David and Scott boxes last month and they were both psyched on the contents!

KOOK

David! He’s the self nominated kook for his poorly written, uninsightful, review of “Apolitical Process” on BeachGrit.com

    Once again another great podcast. Keep´em coming! And yes, donations will be sent once you put it together. I noticed something very cool after Keanu won the Pro France. The camaraderie among the young surfers. I think I saw Kanoa, Kolohe and Leo lifting and taking turns to bring him to the podium. You don´t see that very often anymore. I am not sure if it´s because Keanu has good vibes with everyone or the more carefree spirit of youth. Or maybe both. But that was a highlight for me besides him winning as a massive underdog.

    Hi David!!
    Love your podcast!!
    I’ve recently been in a QS event along with the women WSL stop in Cascais. There, the main break (Carcavelos) is rarely breaking in this part of the year (it really needs a strong swell, or at least with a specific direction). So, both events were run in the alternative spot, praia do Guincho, a really exposed beach break. The problem I saw in this spot is that the surfers had to battle a lot with white water to get back to the lineup. They spent a lot of time (and also energy) paddeling back after catching a wave. Now, I’m seeing the Quicksilver Pro France, and I see the jetski is available for surfers, so, could you explain in your show when it is a available the jetski in competion and when it isn’t? Could you discuss with Scott whether it is a good idea to use it, or whether it is better to let the surfers battling with the ocean (surfing its waves and paddeling back to the point)?
    Keep doing this good work you are doing. THANK YOU!!!

    Hey guys,
    Relatively new listener, about half a dozen podcasts from you guys.
    I work at a school with a surf excellence program, I have done a board for all the kids, we call it the “crowd sourced ecoboard”. David checked it out on Instagram @surfnsk8ment.
    Im coming to San Clemente for the judging of the vissla #creatorscontest, which is on the 28th of oct. i will be staying with Hal who works at surfing cultural and heritage museum. Hope you have heard of the event, maybe you should come. Im not sure where it is in San Clemente yet as i am waiting on conformation from the guys at Vissla. Donald brink and i have been chatting and it should be rad. It may be something you could come to. Considering the push towards more environmentally sustainable surfboards Maurice Cole has been suggesting this could be a chance to get some ideas.
    The board i have made from waste EPS from an architectural molding factory, Cedar, that was originally pulled out of a wall in my house, PU offcuts from a local surfboard manufacturer and agave i collected from the dunes at a local beach, actually surfs really well.

    Have a look at my little clip of it’s construction pics and me trying to surf it.
