“Surfing is a consuming fire.”

Chaz is funny- David is all business

The low stars are FOElo (friends of Elo) and other adult learners. Wsl blew Covid by trying to be too WOKE.

Dave has put in a lot of time and work into creating the podcast network for surf pods.

Matt.9001 ,

The most entertaining surf podcast EVER.

David and Chas put out the most entertaining podcast you can find. Funny, witty, irreverent... It ticks all the boxes you would see on a movie poster. Seriously though, very, very good. I listen to every episode, sometimes twice, and can’t wait for the next one.
