Love the content; hate the algorithm. If you’re sick of doomscrolling but still want to keep abreast of the latest happenings in surfing, see below for a quick selection of stoke-inducing posts.

I recently posted a clip of Joel Tudor surfing at Kelly’s wave pool, and as might be expected, the comment section gets a little chaotic. What really pushed me over the edge was someone claiming that they’d turn down a trip to the wave pool, even if it were free. That’s just fucking insane.
Me? If you have a wave pool and are hellbent on witnessing some subpar surfing, and I don’t have to pay, hit me up ASAP. In the meantime, here’s professional fun-haver Mason Ho, testing out the new Palm Springs Surf Club’s man made wares.
I’m not sure if it’s because I was raised on the East Coast, but I’ve always been drawn to Europe’s surf scene.

I really loved the mini-gallery above; scroll through for some stunning black & white shots.
