Like Obama being ‘America’s greatest president’?

What about Gerald Ford???

Yeah I bet William Howard Taft wore some crummy Dawn Patrol shoulder zip

How terrible is it that nobody remembers the shoulder zip.

Saved for TOTY19.

Now, Millard Fillmore, a notorious goofyfoot Joel Tudor protege, was partial to the two piece wettie with the free flapping beavertail.
Taft looked like a near bursting bratwurst in his zipperless.
Shoulder zip was a matter of executive necessity.

omfg......that is hilarious.

A UK video about how to put on a wetsuit. I have seen it all now.

If only Carroll had filmed me putting on a chestzip wetsuit back to front I could be a yootoob star by now.

well I guess I will always have the memory

I love it when people from places like the UK try to do surf instruction videos! It's like listening to Americans trying to swear, or Malcolm Roberts trying to explain the word "empirical" -- unconvincing and ultimately doomed, but kind of cute at the same time

Equally, I always smirk at the cocksure swagger that pretty much every Australian surfer I've encountered has. Even the raging kooks spacking around on 7S superfishes think they're gods gift

How can you be sure they are Australian Godsave?

Do you engage them in conversation or can you identify them from a distance?

Oh I'm quite friendly in real life, steve. And numbers are mercifully very low so they retain that novelty value
