098 – Spit! October 30, 2017

October 31, 2017

In today’s episode of Spit! Scott recounts his inland surf trip to NLand Surf Park which ended with fun waves and a broken leg (no joke!). He and David then discuss the single greatest heat in competitive surf history, whether we need more of Dave Wassel, the Jason Andre of the BWWT, and why a major tragedy is required to conjure a magic swell. Oh, and Dukes and Kooks and much more! Enjoy!

THE PE’AHI CHALLENGE

The 2017 Pe’ahi Challenge was a spectacular event. Among the highlights . . .

Was Semifinal 2 the single greatest heat in surf history?

Ryan Hipwood’s Barrel

Ian Walsh’s 10 Point Ride. Was it the single wave ever surfed in competitive surf history?

Do we need more Dave Wassel?

    Alright, about the hot dogs. Totally weird and not a surf related comment but order some dogs from Omaha Steaks. Best Dern hot dog maybe in the entire world. Cheers and solid show boys!
