As a follow up to the discussion in our last episode about the localism at Lunada Bay, we begin today’s episode with an interview with Chris Taloa, aka, Chris Won. Chris has spearheaded the movement to free Lunada Bay from the ugly and sometimes violent localism that has plagued one of Southern California’s greatest surf spots for more than half a century. The interview concludes at the 30 minute mark and segues into Surf News with David Scales and Scott Bass. David and Scott discuss the Volcom Pipe Pro, why shortboarding is for the groms, and who’s life has more value, human or shark? We hope you enjoy the show. Please share your feedback in the comment section below. Today’s show was recorded at the Surfing Heritage and Culture Center.
