I walked and climbed the cliffs this morning to check out a remote spot that picks up more swell than anywhere and is protected in a south easter. It was monkey paradise. Waiting for the tide now.

There's a spot that breaks like Sunset! Seriously. Every blue moon it breaks exactly like Sunset. Get some!

And there's bales of cocaine falling from low-flying planes! Such a sweet spot that spot.

What happened to steve's reportage? I thought he was watching every minute of every heat so we don't have to

i wonder how much steve got paid an article. if he watched every heat it's an eight-hour day. and then he had to write the thing. let's say ten hours. say he got 30 bucks an hour - that's 300 dollars. i wonder if it's worth it.

Steve has taken to surfing in the nude. Maybe he's having some sort of breakdown.

Reportage in the pubic interest.

Maybe he was getting paid in Gritcoins?
And the odd disposable surfboard?
