Letter of the Week: Reality Show


LOTW runs from Monday to Monday, with the week’s most brilliant submissions picked and posted seven days after the prompt is first issued on surfingmagazine.com. There are two ways to write in: send an email to surfing@sorc.com, or use the Write a Letter tab on our Facebook page.

There are chefs and models and housewives. Repo men and cops. Cake decorators and tattoo artists. Mechanics and bachelors. Everyone has a reality show, but surfers’ attempts in the field have been — how do you say? F—king awful. Cinematic oil spills. Foot straight through the TV material.

So in this week’s LOTW, script us a decent surf reality show. Who would be in it? What’s the struggle, the plot, the motivation? Why would anyone want to watch it? Who would be the token psycho hot chick?

Best idea gets a box of Nike 6.0 gear dropped on their doorstep — and in all likelihood, a screenwriter contract from MTV (not guaranteed). Our favorite ideas, and the winner of the Nike pack, will be announced and posted next Monday — when we’ll have another LOTW assignment and a brand new reward. Start your keyboards.

Soak it up in the Nike 6.0 Full Court Boardshort-mesh print gives you basketball flavor, while the extra-stretchy quick-dry fabric is all about performance. Both the Mavrk Mid 2s and the SolarSoft Sandal sport your team’s favorite hues, and the 6.0 Hutch Tee helps you transition from water to court with ease.”
