Skindog to Laird: Got Beef?

Ken Collins speaks about Laird Hamilton's Nazaré comments

Ken “Skindog” Collins has a big bookshelf. He loves watching people charge big waves. He hates it when big wave surfers snipe at each other.

    Great words.

    This was incredible & a very class act at a time when big wave surfing or surfing in general needs this.

  • flyboy

    thats cool, good to see positive vibrations on surf!!

    I fully agree, congratulations to Maya and Burle. Congratulations to anyone who played in a giant wave. I remember every day of my life when I drop a wave of 6 feet, this is my record and no one will take that away from me. Congratulations to burle, for having the courage to drop a 100-foot wave. It was possible to paddle jaws? Thinking like Laird, Danilo Couto wouldn’t have paddled it! And if Jeff Clark believed he wasn’t prepared? And Kelly is not young enouth? Or Aikau that is so far?

    Surfers tend to low cut each other at times .No different that many other sports

    Carlos rode what would be considered a giant mushburger compared to Jaws, Log Cabins, Mavs, Cortez Bank, or any other bona fide big wave spot. And he didn’t make it. Laird is right. I don’t know where he gets off questioning Maya’s right to be out there though. But I respect his opinion, even if he is King of the Janitors.
