Funny things, and such.

Great message, but really Kyle? A springsuit?

Crazy Kids
While compiling this year’s Hot 100, we came upon a collection of blogs that are somewhat unsettling. The first, entitled F*ckYeah Surfer Boys, is self-described as “The first blog completely dedicated to collecting and sharing photos of the hottest surfers all on one blog.” It also advises us to “Expect photos of surfers such as Evan Geiselman, Luke Davis, Kolohe Andino, Julian Wilson and moreee.” This blog inspired spinoffs such as F*ckYeah Evan Geiselman.

This week, along with the release of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue came the release of these surfboards. Gilt, a website offering discount luxury items, has these Quiksilver/SI surfboards listed at $2,500 a piece. Two have already been sold.

Lisa’s Back
It was announced this week that Lisa Anderson will be surfing in the Trials for a spot in the Roxy Pro Gold Coast. She last competed in 2004 as a wildcard for this event following her retirement in 2003. Here’s a video from a few years back of Lisa talking about the Tour then and now, among other things.

Mammals Who Surf

We like when people who do not generally “shaka” throw a shaka, as evidenced by the widespread sharing of this photo. So here’s another mainstream shaka for you. You’re welcome.
