Borat Sagdiyev Globe marketing meeting: “Lets focus on the surfer/hipster crowd. Hey C.J., unless you start wearing low-cut v-necks, get some tattoos around your neck, and grow a beard like Dion, you might consider finding sponsorship elsewhere. I mean, Jesus doesn’t sell board shorts, but trendy hipsters do.” Globe has become such a lame excuse of a surf company. All there videos, (“ice scream”, “beyond zero”, etc. use the same anarexic models and lame hipster ish….can’t this trend die alerady!!! GarrattW Who give a shit what people are wearing or how they look, people have been wearing V-necks and getting tattoos long before they became “fashionable” and their surfing speaks for itself. Mark Gregory So many modern surf films have this thing where they are zoomed in so tight on the person surfing, that I can’t see enough of the wave to tell why they are doing what they are doing. Oh look, dude did a huge gouge. Was it really a man hack against a steep gnarly section, or a faux hack where the wave was backing off on deep water? Haven’t you watched from the beach, and you see a ripper coming up on a thick section, and you are saying “Hit it… hit it… hit it!!!” and BAM he smacks the unholy crap out it. Most movies today, you don’t get to see that section coming. Please, pull back a little guys, let us see more of the wave. Sandi Highline – Great video, some great surfing and love the fun time the guys were having! Thanks for posting!! Conor Can we vote ? and if so, how ? Sanjit Walla ABYSS!
