Good... for a surf podcast
Starved for surf content, but are tired of the self-seriousness that plagues most surf podcasts other than Ain't That Swell, which is also unbearable due its empty, overly shticky, weekday morning radio show vibe, where the "personalities" are so overly caricatured as to be void of them, spouting nonsensical catchphrases? Then listen to Dirty Water, where you can listen to relatively famous, yet obscure surf personalities talk about their boring, uninspiring lives! They're just like us!! Brought to you and hosted by BeachGrit co-founders Derek Rielly, the one Aussie surf podcaster who doesn't sound like he does voiceover work for Outback Steakhouse, and Charlie Smith, an American surf media jihadist who sounds like a post-op transgender woman who swallowed Fozzy Bear's vocal chords, you're sure to have an OKish, eye rolling time!... or to get mad. :p
P.S. the episodes with Steve Shearer (aka longtom) are the best. Listen to those, skip the Shane "90-Year Old Man Toddler Face" Beschen two, and make your own decision about the B-Mart one (WARNING: HE IS BORING)...
Much needed in surf world
Very funny. Easily the best or 2nd best podcast in surf, and one of my overall favorites.
Insightful and funny
The humor and irreverence of Beach Grit in audio form. Good interviews and the episodes that feature Longtom are particular gems
