A new tradition.
And, like that, a new holiday tradition has taken flight. This gorgeous Christmas Eve, David Lee Scales and I woke up (him in Newport Beach, me in Cardiff-by-the-Sea), left our loved ones, drove to San Clemente and began to bad-mouth the World Surf League.
We could have been lending a hand in baking Christmas cookies, cleaning homes for socially distanced parties, building vanities so they can be placed under the tree for morning joy, out running last minute errands, but no.
Surf needed to be spoken.
And how many other surf podcasters have ever gotten together on Christmas Eve to perform a service for The People™? Has Dave Prodan? The Great Mark Occhilupo?
I think not and I think a Christmas Eve surf podcast will become as much a December staple as gingerbread.
We, David Lee and I, spake of many things but mostly how the World Surf League is rudderless and may be finished before year’s end.
