David and Scott discuss the proliferation of new podcast’s on the market, boards their currently riding, then they chat about the 44 year old unsponsored surfer who won Tahiti on an experimental surfboard after practicing in a wave pool! (Thanks for that caption Dean Weir). Enjoy!



The launch of Occy’s “Occ-Cast” has led to the surf media’s sudden interest in surf podcasts. Here’s a few to fill your non-Surf Splendor hours.

001 – A Candid Conversation with Chris Cote

Welcome to our first episode of Surf Splendor. We had the first 5 episodes slated for launch, but after interviewing Chris Cote I decided to bump the original episodes and to launch Surf Splendor with Chris’s interview. Chris was the Editor-in-Chief of the now defunct Transworld Surf magazine. This interview was recorded on 7/19/13, one day prior to the start of the US Open of Surfing and about 2 two weeks after he finished publication of the final issue of Transworld Surf. We discussed his unlikely rise from surf stoner to magazine editor, whether Twitter insults sting, and how to win Kelly Slater’s musical approval. We’ll update new episodes every other Monday and other video clips and reference material throughout the week so check back often.
