Griffin Guess's Titan of Maverick can be yours for a special introductory price!
Oh you know how much I love the tawdry bits of our surfing game but there is one tawdry saga so aesthetically unpleasing that I haven’t been able to give it my full attention.
The tawdry saga of Griffin Guess and his Titans of Maverick!
It really should have been grist in the BeachGrit mill for at least a year and maybe even two. For those unaware, Guess and his company Cartel Management partnered with Mavericks pioneer Jeff Clark in 2014 in order to expand the reach of California’s signature big wave event, changed the name to Titans of Maverick and ran it once in 2016 while nobody watched. Like, nobody at all. Then Guess declared bankruptcy, Clark is furious, war rages.
Titans of Maverick LLC is now on the block, being auctioned June 1st with bids starting at $1,000,000.00.
Why hasn’t this tawdry saga been leading news here every other week? I puzzled over it this morning while reading about the latest developments in San Jose’s Mercury News before coming up with three reasons.
- I don’t really enjoy alliteration and particularly don’t enjoy alliteration in names. Griffin Guess Griffin Guess Griffin Guess Griffin Guess. It sounds like a brand leader in douche and douche products.
- Griffin Guess has a faux hawk. A massive, proud, pointy faux hawk. I don’t know if he still rocks it but he did for many years and should have known better.
- Griffin Guess named a surf contest Titans of Maverick and a company Cartel Management. Like he really did.
And that’s pretty much it. You probably won’t read anymore about Griffin Guess here unless BeachGrit wins the Titans of Maverick auction. I am submitting one half bar of warm water Sex Wax and a Rite-Aid coupon for buy one get one free Carefree maxi pads.
