In today’s show David and Scott discuss the Surfer Awards, the controversy of the Triple Crown, a marijuana friendly house on the North Shore (and it’s guests), the Pipe Masters, Dukes and Kooks and much more. Enjoy!

THE SURFER AWARDS

Benji Weatherly’s comedy on the red carpet was a highlight.

Eddie If bombed hard! ( I can’t find the actually footage. If you do, please post it in the comments below. Thanks!)

Congrats to Carissa and John John for taking top honors.

Congrats to “Let’s Be Frank” for winning Film of the Year.

TRIPLE CROWN

Should potential Triple Crown winners be allowed entry into the Pipe Masters? Only Frederico and the ‘CTers are able to surf the 3rd and final event. Bass says it’s unfair. What do you say?

WEED MAPS

Bruce and friends have a new app. Bassy no likey. More importantly, will it help or hinder his Pipe Masters’ performance?

THE NEVER-ENDING LUNADA BAY SAGA

“Someone” set fire to the demolition equipment at Lunada Bay.

DUKE

Russell Bierke

KOOK

JP Currie and The Inertia for this embarrassingly misguided assessment of Dane Reynolds, his motives and his film “Chapter 11”. It’s also their most egregious attempt to acquire clicks/views (yet here I am posting a link to it). READ IT HERE

Dane fired back via Instagram . . .

And finally, The Inertia founder Zach Weisberg wrote a response to Dane’s response, which proves to be an even more thorough misunderstanding of Dane and his sentiments.

    hey guys,

    First off, thanks for putting out such a great forum for all things surf. i am curious as to your thoughts on the WSL locations for 2017. aside from moving the rio event to saquarema, ( which is a huge upgrade ) there are no new locations. 3 events in oz, and only 1 in hawaii !! No Indo, no mex or centro american spots, no NZ, or chilean spots, and an imbalance of locations that favor natural footers. even the predominant lefthand reefs of fiji, tahiti, and pipe/backdoor favor the natural footed surfers.
    HOW ABOUT A TRUE DREAM TOUR ????

    looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this.

    best wishes for 2017,

    scotty from norcal
