Week in Review

Random happenings in surf for the Week of December 10

The World Title Showdown! Pipe! SURFER Poll! Kelly! Parko! Seabass! Triple Crown! Other stuff! Ah! Here’s some unrelated items that occurred inside the computer:

Some Alternative Hawaii “Coverage”
Boys not of Hawaii, in Hawaii, talking about girls of Hawaii and not of Hawaii. A video by Jay “Bottle” Thompson.

Horrible Friends
A small boat, a large shark, and some cackling foreign folks.

Innovation!
A press release this week announced “technological breakthroughs” for American Wave Machines’ wavepool, which is currently in production Sochi, Russia, the site of the 2014 Olympics. Dun, dun, dun…

More Innovation!
This week Patagonia announced that after months of R&D, their new Big-Wave Inflation Vest is finally on the market. Unfortunately, that market only includes about 40 passionate hellmen.

Killin’ Strippers and Killin’ It
Derek Dunfee and co. made this dark little short.

Santas, Surfing, and Ham
An obvious union.

More Surfing Santa
A most ridiculous music video. This is not a joke.

This Is Also Not a Joke
Another press release announced the introduction of Brotein Enterprises, which is protein bars for bros.

A Red-Haired Person
Apparently Shaun White, the “Surfing Tomato,” bought a $3.8 million house in Encinitas, where he filmed a new surf GoPro video. This unrelated video is ridiculous:

A White-Haired Person
Someone Tweeted this. (She’s not bored to sleep, that’s the face of sheer joy.)
