I guess Larissa read the book I wrote about MC and Curren and the reverse vee, she pretty much quotes it throughout

The book was written to accompany MC's and TC's Reverse Vee Project board series, only 300 were ever printed and you only got one if you bought a board, I think there's like 30 left. I want to get it a wider readership. The tale of how these two extremely different people came across each other in a country foreign to both of them (SW France) and between them designed some of the best high performance surfboards ever made is pretty fascinating. Like: where does creativity come from?

I’d like to read it. Can’t afford one of the Curren boards though.

Probably an Extremely Controversial Opinion but it's surfing related. I find Italo's backhand (non-air) reverses ugly as sin.

Passing thought.
The current WSL seems full of young, trained, coached, sober, heat-winning (at least QS), hyper-performers.

Kelly Slater. Ok, he’s not a contender.
The fact that, at 47, in 2 and bit events, in small waves, he has not been the loser in 4 heats seems almost as remarkable as many of his more storied achievements.

Shippies Comp was way more interesting than Keramas. Would have watched the whole 5 hours if it was the weekend.

kelly looked fantastic on a few waves yesterday when he was carving it up but then when he did a couple of airs he looked like an old fella getting out of bed in the morning all stiff and tender :) really made me feel for him.

Holy shit, listening to kayo and Strider Raspberry Wasilewski mentioned how he "used to ride for Quiksilver". Really? I'm sure I've seen him surf and was far from impressed.

Strider knows how to surf alright! Maybe now he's a bit chubby and off his game, but back in the day he was hot stuff for a year or two. You didn't know that Legion?
