Gawd, surfing is so serious isn’t it? What with all the lineup drama, industry drama, competitive drama, Olympic drama, it’s easy to forget that the Pastime of Kings was meant for truly one thing: having fun. Fun, people! Have some. That’s why it’s nice to concentrate on funny things. Funny things that make us laugh, and funny people. And there were several funny things that made me chuckle aloud this week. If you didn’t notice them, you should have.
Topping the list is the (almost) always funny Ivy Miller (below). The surf and snow pontificator brought the heat with this brilliant use of some Instagrammy, Tik-Toky app that allows one to change friends’ faces to the opposite sex. You know the one. She then asks herself in a sexually ambiguous manner, “How many shots would it take for me to hook up with my friends as dudes?” An interesting question: “Next we have Coco? Sober. Hot!” Not to be missed is Ivy’s same take with her guy friends. You’ve never seen Mark McMorris look like this.
