Sparkle Eyes really vibes like he'd be a killer snuggle monster.
The Padang Cup event was very good, but it did drag a little. Building swell, tide complications. The brilliant moments were just that, but with some rounds featuring a half-hour wait between waves it got a tad boring.
Perfect for a highlight video. Boil the day down to its concentrated best, add a dash of Mason Ho, and you’ve got yourself a tasty dish. Yum yum yum. Eat it right up.
Mason’s appeal is how well he conveys pure stoke. Chips through my jaded heart. Reminds me of younger years when this was all I wanted. Be a pro surfer, hang out with rippers. Spend my days shredding with the best. Not really how things work, but it’s the dream. The one they sell, the one people buy. The one I don’t really want anymore but still kinda do, somewhere deep down inside of cynical piece of shit I’ve become.
If BeachGrit ever starts making real money I’d love to see about getting Mason on a trip with us. Go to Alaska, or somewhere else really cold. Do a full soul-bro cold weather camping trip. Look at us, we’re the Malloys!
I’d make sure he was bundled up against the cold. Bring him hot cocoa to warm his tummy.
I’d “forget” to bring enough sleeping bags. We’d be forced to share body heat to survive the night. Cuddle up so good. Not in a sexual way or anything. But Sparkle Eyes really vibes like he’d be a killer snuggle monster.
There’d be some nighttime boners, but that’s perfectly natural. Just something your body does. Don’t be ashamed.
As far as the footage… a chopped and distilled run of footage from the official stream would have been good enough for government work. I’d’ve watched it. Enjoyed it. Praised it a bit but not really because it didn’t bring anything new.
This is another story. Adds so much spice. We’ve got the channel cam angle, sadly missing from the stream. Gives you a glimpse of that bucking bronco foam ball insanity. So so so so so so good! Cliff-top view almost makes it looks easy. Staring down the throat of heaving barrels makes it very clear how much skill it takes to do this shit.
Drone angle makes an appearance. I hate those fucking things. Trying to surf while one hovers over the lineup is like trying to read a book with a leaf blower firing upside your head.
But it looks so cool. I enjoy watching stuff filmed from drones. Just don’t like it when they intrude on my scene. Some kind of NIMBY shit, for sure.
Music choice is appropriate. Fun guitar jamming away. Doesn’t hurt your ears. Doesn’t distract from the images. Good good good.
In the end this video is the same as every other one featuring Mason Ho. It’s totally fucking awesome and I absolutely love it and it makes me gush like the fan boy I am.
