An underbite of World Champion caliber
The additional weight of his jaw adds anywhere from 6 to 8 gallons of spray to his turns.
Yet another reason to avoid duckdiving
Smells good. Put it in dry hair, and it kind of gives you that post-surf look. What could be better?
The sound is great and there's a bro in the box
Combine a long-lasting battery with a rugged rubber exterior and you have a speaker system perfect for long summer days on the beach. When you power the Blaster down and the bro in the box says “See ya later,” you actually want to believe him.
Just wax it and go
You can’t lay into a testosterone-rich man hack without a stomp pad, right? Wrong! How can you be so daft?
They fold, and how!
This is no place for fashion advice, but we can’t help but to extoll the virtues of these sunglasses. They fold up, not like the standard "hook ‘em in your collar” fold, but more like a multi-hinged, MacGyver, gotta go, life on the run, front-pocket type of operation.

It's a rectangular plastic box big enough for one bar of wax. Brilliant.
From Vince in North Shore to Subotai in Conan the Barbarian, Mr. Pipeline had range
In the surf world, we knew Lopez was legit on the silver screen after his complex and deeply nuanced portrayal of a steely Hawaiian local named “Vince” in the 1987 classic North Shore.

This is how it’s supposed to be. Any job with the word “surf” in the description—especially founder and editor of SURFER magazine—ought to allow a three-hour workday, the wearing of flip-flops and trunks at work, and a chance to escape the office when T-Street is firing.
The secret to better surfing is at your local drug store
In the same way that Air Jordans were the secret to Michael Jordan’s game, the ankle brace must be the hidden power behind John John’s performance at Keramas.
