Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

What are you doing here, kook? Never seen your face before. You wanna catch some of our waves do you?

Oh yeah...

Well, first you must answer these twenty questions. Use your brain, kook. Google doesn't work out here!

Write your answers in the comment box below. They won't appear straight away, but don't worry, me and the boyz have received them and all your answers will appear in a few hours time.

No way will you...will anyone, guess them all. Spread them across a few comments if it helps.

Answers revealed 3pm tomorrow. The most correct wins.

Good luck, kook.
