Shark!
Another video from Florida featuring the creature we surfers are irrationally obsessed with.

Rice Pudding!
Have you always wanted to know how to make rice pudding? Of course you have. Have you always longed for the day when Derek Hynd (former World Tour surfer turned surf-pundit turned finless-maestro) would teach you how? I’m sure you have. Not to fret, Korduroy has you covered.

Last week, Christian Post reported that Bethany Hamilton had “suffered a sliced bicep in a surfing accident in Indonesia Wednesday, requiring 10 stitches and causing concern about apparent numbness in her arm.” But according to Twitter (today’s almighty purveyor of 140-character insight), she’s doing just fine.

Judging from this photo of Bethany that she posted on Twitter, Bethany's arm is doing just fine.

You Pay, We Play
Crowdsourced funding platforms have popped up all over the web this year as a means to gain donations from web-users for all sorts of projects, ranging from artistic or journalistic endeavors, to soliciting funding for specific needs in schools.
