Surf news! David and Scott discuss the sorry state of surf filmmaking, and the few glimmers of hope. Kandui? Or Nokandui? We discuss the NFL’r who just wants to shred, we preview J-Bay, and share the heartwarming story of the world’s oldest grom. Enjoy!

MUCH ADO ABOUT SURF FILMS

Surfer’s REDirect Project has been sorely underperforming. The video’s are all missing the intended objective¬†of being original and unique.

Erik Knutson’s video of John John is still the frontrunner, in our opinions.

Reef’s new movie EXIT is a waste of time, but here it is anyway.

Toby Cregan and Creed McTaggart did something called “Real Axe”. It just showcases Creed’s mediocrity. I don’t get it. Rasta is always brilliant though!
