But thanks to Filipe Toledo (who last week showed everyone how he intends on surfing the place during the upcoming Oakley Pro) it's now gonna be known as "the hardest wave in the world" due to near-impossible moves like this -- making excellent surfers feel less-satisfied about their skill level... Driving along a dune-skirted highway, do you trim the edges with your fingertips, attacking the transitions as they come, fantasizing that your own human instincts could mimic those inhuman lines? Maybe it appeared that way at one time in our sport's timeline -- but it's not like that anymore. The Internet has made people so ridiculously malleable these days. And besides, even if these were sharks, Kolohe would've still snaked 'em. Believe it or not, not every surfer in Southern California is sponsored.
and average surfers feel like going somewhere else. High-line carving one hill, bashing the next, fading another, boosting the next like you're some WCT pro warming up for the Hurley Pro... Now you have air guys and power surfers, finesse people and raw animals. People want to believe that everything they see, shoot and post online is something truly extraordinary, when in reality, it isn't. Not every surfer can launch air-reverses on command.
About six years ago I first visited the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh’s North Side and was surprised by just how much I truly enjoyed it.
I’m not quite sure why I really never had a desire to visit the museum, which opened in 1994, about seven years after Warhol died in 1987.
Mostly, I was never previously a big fan of Warhol’s work – which will disappoint my artistically inclined niece, Errin, who is an ardent fan of Andy Warhol’s multi-varied and undeniable talents.
Some of it I liked, of course, but not enough to care much about it one way or the other.
Despite all the fascinating and wonderful discoveries I made about Andy Warhol and the wide range of art and media that he was involved in at the museum, I distinctly recalled my disappointment at the lack of focus on Warhol’s album covers.Skateboard teams then chose three riders, consisting of at least one pro and one am, to jam on each of the four features. Here’s a break down of the best performances of the day: enjoi Dick Guantlet – 1.
