Which surf site brings the greatest amount of good to the greatest number of sentient beings? Yes, that's right, according to utilitarian principles (both act and rule) one should follow swellnet.

I'm kind of hoping he's already an anonymous poster on the forums.
Pretty sure he's been brought up in a number of discussions too.

Interesting .

First mention in the New York Times Ben ?!?

I was sure the W.I.L or Tow vs Paddle threads were going to get you there .
But who would of thunk it would be the Surf reports !!!

Then again now we have his attention maybe he'll do some studying of comments / threads behaviour . You know poly-personalities , their place in society and such . Maybe the ethics of locking oneself in a Hall of Mirrors .

Well, Craig's sleuthing for Kelly's wave pool got us mentioned (and linked) in the UK's Daily Mail, and America's Washington Post and San Francisco Gate. 

But yeah, NY Times is a lovely notch on the belt.
