Read the words and phrase within the context of that story. That's key. That's what defamation hinges on. You can't be sued for squillions for an observation, a description, made without malice, in the context of that Surfing Life story about the bloke being different to first appearances.Smacks of desperation for a quick buck.
The mag does however deserve to be mightily punished for its current Travel Bible issue _ pathetically 50 per cent horrid inane advertorial by already well known resorts and boats owners. Astonishingly limited number of places on this planet also mentioned for a "Travel Bible'. Almost certainly the worst surf travel issue mag I've ever read. Was desperate for doctor's waiting room reading material.
And a surfer who does not fish is a lesser man. Or woman.
