NORTH SHORE, OAHU...

Every year at about this time numerous professional and big wave surfers from all over the world converge on the north shore of Oahu to try their luck against mother nature and fellow surfers in a multitude of contests. This contestant was in town in hopes that they would be running the Eddie Aikau, a contest held only for the best of the best when wave face height reaches at least 30 feet.

Who da' guy with the lime floater?

Fats Flannighan said...

that legendary north shore big wave rider is none other than our very own Shotzy Shafer aka. Archie Rice. We have photo documentation of him riding up to 50 footers on his lime green mat. His tow-in rides at the Cortez Bank are breathtaking.

ANSWER MAN said...

Fats, why are you privy to this indider's info. Well, you know who Tubes is, shortly on his dwindling blog he will expose the myth of D&W's.

Fats Flannighan said...

el tuberoo, the Vblog will never die. I really think that alot of people are confused about clicking onto the MeTube link, I know I was for awhile. With all the money Henry Ford made off the Oxbow Incident, he should buy you a custom rig befitting your stature.

Fats, you think they're confused, how do you think I feel. There's so much wonderful stuff on it, but I can't explain how to short-cut things. I'm sure you'v heard the age old adage, 'You can't teach an old dog new tricks'. If you viewed today's blog, did you buy into it?

Time for Puttzle to assist the Tube.

Little Johnny, you are a big time loser.

south beach diet said...

He kind of looks like Velzy in his waning days.

anticipation said...

North Shore reminds me of my 3rd hubby. He adored lime colored surf mats, wearing his black Churchel flippers.

South Beach Diet, before it's too late. 'CLEAR'

Mick Corsair said...

South Beach Diet, he does not look like Velzy in his waning days.That is offensive, next thing you know, you'll be insulting John Lennon. As a matter of fact, I'm suprised you haven't made any cracks about Wayne Miyata and Pearl Harbor.

john wayne said...

don't remind me of those frickin Harbor Bombers.

Oh lighten up, Murphy!

The Crab said...

Wayne was a great guy and a good friend! Lennon was a complete asshole! Surf mats rule! Many great surfers came from that beginning!

inspector clouseau said...

the crab is Murphy using aka's so he won't get smoked.

Hi Inspector!

Murphy might also be Mick Corsair.

inspector clouseau said...

by jove I think you're right. Puttzle, hack into Murphy's computer to see what names he is using so we can head this off at the pass. This pimping and punking of Murphy MUST continue at all costs.

BIG BOSS said...

Anon' #4, are you from Santa Monica?

Mick Corsair said...

I,m Mick Corsair.

panty waist said...

Notice: by any stretch of the imagination is Murphy a Corsair. Hell, he ain't even a Viking.

ralph nader said...

Murphy is a corvair?
