Just in: BeachGrit’s new TV series!

First episode: Matt "Mayhem" Biolos and his amazing volume tank!

Let me be the very first to welcome you to BeachGrit’s newest offering. A television series we call Like, Bitchin!

Each two-to-three minute episode will pull back the curtain on some pointless extravagance of our little surf world. Some inconsequential but almost fun-ish insight.

Are you curious about how rocker changes the way you ride?

About Michael Tomson’s opinion as to why our industry died?

About China’s bald-faced Horn of Africa land grab and how this is affecting the world potash market?

Well, take your shoes off and pour whatever alcohol you have nearby into whatever juice was leftover from breakfast. You’re going to need it!

It won’t be the most exciting 2:51 you’ll spend today but it is worth it to watch Matt Biolos, a sculpture in his absolute prime, do a Chris Ward impression. Also of note is host Chas Smith’s very clear ignorance around a surfboard. He has no idea what volume has to do with anything and is still puzzling over which half of the board is the deck.

This first season will feature eight episodes in total. Number one explores Matt “Mayhem” Biolos and his Volume Tank.

I went to Matt’s lovely San Clemente artist cottage on a fine spring day to hear him talk volume and what it means to the shaper and, thereby, us.

Real quick, do you remember Like, Bitchin? Derek and I started a blog years and years ago with that name. I can’t remember anything about it and do you want to know why?

We became very embroiled in a certain controversy and ripped the whole thing down and we ripped it down so so successfully that there is no trace of it anywhere. Poof. Gone.

But back to Like, Bitchin! 2.0. It is much better than the original. Maybe.
