Never one to shy away from voicing an opinion, especially regarding surfing, Chris Freeman has spoken.
The Ocean City Homeboy and long-time ripper-extraordinaire is obviously pissed. Almost enough to go out and go surfing.
“I don’t do tricks. Just turns, tubes and vertical lippers. No air 360s for me. While cool, I’m pretty disturbed about the state of surfing in general. I mean christ, we have some dude named Sal calling the comps and announcing. I mean we should have dudes like Barton Lynch or Gary Elkerton or some other legend ofour sport doing this stuff. I mean John McEnroe calls tennis, why do we have Sal? Guy is a douche.”
“Sure a major air 360 is epic but to score a 10 without any connecting moves like a big cutty. I saw someone do 5 major hacks and an inside air-thingy and get a 7. Something is wrong with the professional side of the our sport. And then you go down to the beach and see all the kids trying to boost and fall while passing the chance to do a real turn. It’s a joke. the 80′s and 90′s where the prime of our sport. I watched some online video through magic seaweed of some Aussie dude. The filming and editing were amazing but nothing but spin tricks. All slomoed out and nothing but chest to head high waves. Fucking gay.”
“Don’t get me wrong, surfing is incredible but the spinny tricks are like the major thing now. WTF.”
“And does that Sal guy even surf. That was my point. FUCK. I hate.” “That dude Sal is a fat ass non-athletic piece of shit party guy. I want to know who let him in the club house. Snips or Shaun Tompson should have run him out years ago. Mickey Dora and Bunker Spreckles are rolling in their graves. Its a joke.”
