A win for the little guy!
I wasn’t going to say anything but…. it feels wild chest pounding is what The People™ are really into these days.
Robust numbers reports. Wins across the board etc. Heretofore unforeseen growth.
The problem, though, is that be it politically left, politically right or Erik Logan, bald-faced lies are served as truth thus depressing those same The People™ when elections are lost, World Surf Leagues are not purchased by Netflix.
Big bummers all around.
Well, this little ol’ BeachGrit is, of course, for you, by you, and so we are pleased to announced that you are now, officially, the biggest surf website in the whole wide world.
Per the SimilarWeb:
A little under 5 million unique visitors last month.
Surfline and Magic Seaweed, combined, got 2.3 million.
The World Surf League much, much, much, much, much, much less.
The Inertia and Stab much lesser.
Hands are certainly being wrung in Santa Monica, Venice-adjacent, whatever “it city” from three years ago where Stab is currently setting up shop, trying to figure out how to replicate exceptionally poor grammar.
Consultants being hired in Surfline’s Huntington Beach offices to fire even more people so they can get down to the magic number of two.
The Inertia’s Zach Weisberg doubting, for the first time, the power of listicles.
Are you proud?
You should be.
Leave that candle burning on the windowsill unattended, for a moment, and crack into the vintage champagne.
