Got it, Nick. Since when does "the average consumer" own stock shares?

ScoobyDoo 01/03/2013 07:33 PM

Kurt 01/03/2013 07:17 PM

All I can say is WOW!

Joao Correia 01/03/2013 05:47 PM

Surf brands "really not for us to worry about"? Yeah, I guess, as long as you don't own any shares in 'em, or have a job in a surf shop, or something. Surf brands have spent (and I do mean "spent") the past 15 or more years doing their absolute best to drive surf culture at all sorts of levels. If a stale global economy and changes in consumer mood are eroding their influence, it's worth more than that one-liner, Matt.

Surfline should help get the women's tour back on track with some prize $$$. And they should do a year long series on traveling to the places Sean Collins loved to go to. It is important for all the youngsters to connect with those who went there before them. We are a tribe, and it is important for the tribal elders to keep those who follow them well grounded. Kevin Naughton motivated an entire generation including the Surfline founder, now it's Surfline's turn to motivate the next generation.

I was wondering why Sean is not pictured on ths R.I.P. page?

Editor reply:
He passed on Dec. 26, 2011. Sean is our founder/father/hero, we would never forget him.

Nice to see Reef scoring such incredible rides the past year. He is such a humble guy and seems bright and really stoked with the pure act of riding waves. Great clips of Fiji, really one of the best moments of the year.

Think it safe to say that big wave paddle surfing stole the spotlight this year

good on ya guys to mention those who are not with us today,especially Randy Sleigh....an incredible shaper,a north shore legend,and a good friend who will be missed. unfortunately I missed his paddle out due to being in jail,but that is something Randy could have appreciated!....Aloha my brother and we will see you down the line....

My good friend from high school, Randy Sleigh, I am so sorry to see you go. Randy was an excellent surfer, with a speedy and smooth style with a sunny smile. We spent a lot of fun times surfing Riviera together. Randy had an excellent sense of humor. The perfect day for Randy was a day of surf and a meal with the wife. I got he best wave of my life at the "Hole" when Randy told me it had been good, and I checked it out. Thanks, Randy.
