    What's Wrong With Surfing(Apart from Matsurfing-Decent Mats)

    Post  piskian on Mon Dec 17, 2012 12:33 am





    What's this?Applying Reaganomics to outdoor pursuits?Profiteering and specific target goals to enjoying nature and riding waves?Objectifying physical beauty in this context?Living a luxury lifestyle in Dubai whilst ignoring the immigrant underclass which constructs their dreamworld and is completely supressed?This isn;t what my parent fought for in the '68 riots.Isn't this what the surfer "lifestyle" emerged to subvert?
    Come on,get real...not "reality"!
    Anitpodeans are the new Americans.
    Naivity has no defence with instant global knowledge from the internet now.

    Reduced to tears because she really wants to ride a mat if the truth be told. First world problems eh?

    Stereotypes play a big part in selling the "lifestyle" it seems.

    Didn't get to the end of that.

    Shame you had to delineate between types of mat surfer. Unfortunately we're cursed with a touch of that world for the time being...

    That'll pass in time though.

    Keep it floppy...
