Dave Prodan is the SVP of Global Brand Identity for the World Surf League. He’s been with the organization since 2005 and has evolved through various roles and has helped shape the WSL as we experience it today.

Enjoy the show!

In the largest deal in WSL history, estimated to net $30 million over the next two years, Facebook entered into an agreement which makes them the exclusive digital home for WSL live events.

How will the viewing experience change? How will the WSL use that cash infusion? What are the benefits for the audience?


Lowers and Fiji are gone. What happened?

Keramas is back. Surf Ranch is added. What is the goal with adding Surf Ranch?


The Pipe Masters will not happen in 2019. Why not? Why doesn’t the WSL just maintain it’s normal permit rather than shifting the dates?

Have you ever considered that it’s all a simulation? Earth is just a suss self-propagating program running on a quantum computer, controlled by the reptilian terrestrial fuckwits on a different plane of space-time? ? ? you THINK you have independent thoughts but it’s actually some pubeless iguana spawnlet’s highschool experiment? ??Another C+ bio-programming student with one hand in the digital petree dish and the other down his jocks, plugging you into his freechoice_illusion.module?!?! Every thought, feeling and experience you’ve ever lived just binary in the matrix!?! ? ?Your first barrel? Matrix. Girlfriend? Matrix. Denpasar Airport? Matrix. ?? @lukeegan couldn’t give less of a fuck about simulation theory, he’s focussing on whacking the piss out of it on a 6’6 round pin. #surf #core #railgame #tribalelders #herbaldiscussions #theorchybottlecouncil #simulationtheory #advancedcoding #myspacelayouts #thereptilianmonthly #cooliguanasofinstagram #deprogramyourpowersurfing #plugintothesource #fullchargedhuman
