# Week in Review

## Random happenings in surf for the Week of April 2

| posted on April 06, 2012

You watched the contest. You wrote irate messages on social media about it. You lamented the poor performance of your Fantasy Surfer team. And this is what happened while you were otherwise occupied.

For just \$1 million, this could be yours. The description says: “Imagine all the important movie star people, like Pamela Anderson and her girlfriends that have touched the board or laid on it, pressing their wet and hot bodies against its long and hard surfaces. Imagine you walking to the beach with the BayWatch Surfboard tucked under your arm and tons of women coming running towards you, wanting to be near you, to touch you, attracted to your your Masculinity, your Purity of Essence (POE).”

A Surfing Game
“It’s like HORSE, only slightly better.” Not sure if this one will catch on…

High Ideas
This week, Quiksilver released their “Funner Summer” collection, which includes this gorilla mask. No, it’s not a joke. It’s \$28.

Porn Noises
If you were watching the Rip Curl Pro at work this week, hopefully you turned the sound off for the commercial breaks. Otherwise, your coworkers now surely think you are the kind of human who watches porn on company time. If you did not watch the contest, hit play on the video and take a listen.

Same Same
Rip Curl also released a new line.

Owen v.s Hulk.

The Longest Barrel of All Time
If you’re not a fan of Donavon, turn the sound off and watch it anyway.

Playin’ It Safe
We received a press release for a new product this week: The Playa (“Player” in American).

Just a Great Title

Archery
Koa Smith straps Go Pros to everything, and shoots arrows at swine.

For men and women.

“Look At Me!” Their Outfits Said.
Matt Wilkinson and his BFF.

i’m starting to think this is a Wilko vs. Sterling Spencer update.

That ‘Archery’ video is horrible and wrong – they should have followed it and killed it as soon as it was possible, not let it suffer.
