Watch: Reptilian Vapeshifters

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

"The forebears of the impending polypocalypse are already walking among us. Trust no one. Get woke."

It's a warning from the good folk at Drag, and it comes replete with a seven minute vid of new breed surfing.

Yeah Chippa,
No one wants to watch your having fun.
You should just do what other people want you to do...
Because we know best.
So there.
Me and GoofyFoot are off to be legit rippas, unlike you you eskylid rippin' fool.

Breath. Murdoch's empire will one day fail to control our minds.

I love the way Chippa surfs and the way he gets involed and doesn’t put up barriers. I’d shut the fook up if he came out and said he hated kooks that did a anything but stand up on their two feet.

Dunno what it's called, but that lip slide at 3:15 is insane.

Tried to look up the skating equivalent definition, and holy shit! There's a tonne of different kinds of slides and grinds. I have no idea how to tell them apart at high speed.

In unrelated news, I now feel very old.

As it was pretty centred (and you don't have trucks on a surfboard) it's a frontside slide. Blunts and others will involve whether you use the front or back trucks.

For any of you dissatisfied fools with eyes painted on Watch it again he rides a lid better then you and 90% of Kelly slaters army a generation of catching waves lost to one tool the short board do half of what he dose with a lid, mal, hand plane or pool noodle then your a diverse wave rider not just a sheep blending into the crowd to feel cool.

I swear I seen the ol fella with the long hair at Bendalong 2 weeks ago doing headstands and all sorts on a softie!
The kids and I loved what he was doing, my son even said “He’s having fun and doesn’t care about anything else”

Same fella. He's at Bendy all the time, often down in the north corner. Spends most of the session either upside or back to front.
