Are you incredibly wealthy? Are your days filled with very little responsibility and therefore a surplus of free time? Do you have a fresh quiver of boards ranging from 5’8″ to 6’2″ that have been staring at you with puppy dog eyes, begging and I mean begging for a typhoon swell? Then I have an idea for you…

Go to Japan. Like, now.

There are two tropical storms spinning in the Pacific right now. Some call ’em the twin typhoons. Others are saying they’re twin mothers. I even heard one guy in Walgreens just now call them the barometric bandits — he was buying a bottle of Jägermeister though, and I learned in journalism school to never use anyone whose breath smells like black Twizlers mixed with butane as a source.
