Tom Curren : PT-2

We don’t see surfing like this today. Watching todays elite surfing is sickening at times. Clone like surfing by many of the sticker clowns. Though highly athletic an way out of my scope of surfing ability. Many are flicking, gorilla gouging and monkey pumping through maneuvers. Notice a well poised attack in this fine specimen of surfing. Effortless linking from one maneuver to the next. If only our adolescent youth could take a break from the fog of point surfing. Some study of Tom Curren would do them well.

Out

The Shaper , Glasser and Sander of gum surfboards will be out of town till Aug, !9 th. Female interns will be along for the ride. Shitty actors on both sides of the curtain. State of the art equipment is saddled up. All for the sake of new endeavors. Baby Dyno will be missed. #coolwave

Pit crew.

Puppet Season

 

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death’s construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor

Yeah

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait ’till their judgment day comes
Yeah!

Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgment, God is calling
On their knees the war pig’s crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
Oh lord yeah!

Public Service Annoucment: Goro’s Rule & More

The first rule of Getting Pitted is: You do not talk about Getting Pitted.

Unless you’re really frothing, then an exception can be made.

Now, as you saunter along the beach scoping out babes, remember this mantra and repeat it aloud so that anybody violating this code may hear and learn from you:

The first rule of Exercise is: You do not talk about Exercise.
The first rule of Exercise is: You do not talk about Exercise.
The first rule of Exercise is: You do not talk about Exercise.
The first rule of Exercise is: You do not talk about Exercise.

On another note, do you live in South Beach, Miami Beach, Jacksonville, or Melbourne perhaps? Or maybe Venice Beach, Nokomis Beach, Naples, Cape Coral, Deerfield, Davie, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, or even Cocoa Beach? Spectacular! You’ll be thrilled to know that the good folks at ¡Gum Surfboards! Inc. are only a stone’s throw away. ¡Gum Surfboards! takes pride in its craft and the tradition of hand shaped and glassed surfboards. In other words, we aren’t like those other surfboard companies that simply pay someone else to shape their surfboards and throw their logo on it, then send it to a glasser to sweat and poor his soul into only to be rewarded with pennies. No folks, here at ¡Gum Surfboards! we do the whole damn process! We start with a good old fashion foam blank. Then, we whittle it down to it’s ideal form, that of a surfboard of course. Then we mix our colors,  and add it to resin; we can do almost any color imaginable (Brett, feel free to step in here and elaborate on the nuances anytime, pal). Then, we lay out fiberglass on top of the foam and cover that puppy in colored resin. Then, we let it dry, sand it down to a smooth finish, and possibly give it a hot coat. It’s a time consuming endeavor, but a labor of love, nonetheless. I’m sure I’m missing something, but I’m a Goro, not a surfboard shaper, so you’ll just have to take my word at face value. Or else! Muhaha! Wink, wink. Anyway we truly love making surfboards—otherwise we wouldn’t do it. Lord knows there’s no coin in it! So, cut out the middle man and come directly to the man. Yes, yes, elect ¡Gum Surfboards! as your shaper of choice this summer.

Goro also knows that Johnny Cage is a parody of Jean-Claude Van Damme and that Mortal Kombat was initially suppose to be a video game adaptation of the film Universal Soldier. Thank God that didn’t happen.

Thanks Midway Games. Get tubed!

The Evolution: Devolution

The Devolution is modeled specifically after the Evolution ridden by Wayne Lynch. It’s the board from the movie named Evolution which features Mr. Lynch doing some weighty shredding.

Shredder: No body shreds as hard as Wayne Lynch did. Get over it!
Splinter: Fine, Shredder, I get it!


I will make surfboards inspired by Wayne Lynch. I will call them Devolution.

That’s an excellent idea, rodent. I’ll stop kicking your ass and let you get to it.
