So much grit since we last met! David and Chas bite into ultra hard beach candy, the subtext, and what’s happening behind the scenes over at BeachGrit; including the firing of writer Michael Ciaramella, the ideal physique required to shred, why Pottz is breaking our hearts, and whether front traction pads are ever acceptable. Take the candy!
