Yes, Do Blame Laird

That's what I was doing as I was sitting there.

Seriously, that's too much man for my taste. Does any one person need that much testosterone in one body? He resembles a side of beef that can walk, talk and SUP.

If you could see my face, you'd know I was not amused.

Blame.

Laird.

Yeah, I tried to cut him off once at the "bu" back in 2005...he was riding the same thing back then. Looks the same, different shorts. Yep, he SUPS!

Amen my friend. Laird is huge asshole for introducing the SUP game to every kook who is either a nube with $1000 to spare, or for guys too out of shape for a longboard. Everyone knows Laird because if his ads for credit cards, etc. and thus asks me, the one surfer they know, if I too ride huge waves off of jet skis and have a SUP board. I typically answer with why I'd rather ride a kayak in the surf and jet skis smell like gas.

Are you saying it's OK for me to be pudgy?

Chortle - bloody hilarious! I agree, I'm not into cliche men or ready-mades. But he looks like Laird - what's a guy to do except cash in on it? There must be plenty of babes out there who adore blokes like this.

I am from a Dutch/German & Scottish/Irish background - I guess I should love the blonde 'super-race' but I am just a little more than a tad nervous about them, which is probably quite unfair.

Michelle, you continue to slay me!! LOL!! And, yes, part of my gripe with this Laird thing is that we're told to worship this dude when Hawaiians and Polynesians have been doing this stuff for . . . forever. But now it's important or valid because a blond guy is doing it? Part of what bothers me about Laird is what he represents. I know some people may take this the wrong way, but I'll just say it. White people did not invent surfing. They do not own surfing. They cannot make the claim to be responsible for surfing. Laird has been put forth as surfing incarnate, I guess. And, I'm sorry, but he is not that. Perhaps Duke was. Laird is not.

I agree wholeheartedly - give credit where it is due. You know even though I am Caucasian (with a bit of Spanish, Dutch-Indonesian thrown in) I hate this white supremacy shit. It's what has fucked the world up. I can't honestly say though that any other race would have done it differently.....there is a part of the human brain that equates to the goldfish mentality: ie just eat, breed and consume resources and when there is no oxygen left in the pond, we will just die! Intelligent!

i'm a whiteish guy. plus some brown stuff including maidu and a grandfather from the azores. this aint no white or any color issue, its a dick, i wanna show off my rad, ripped self cause i cant/wont work on the inside self issue. we have plenty of suc's down here and there are some regular kooks doing it but, most are muscklee bound wanna be yada yadas that cant surf. oh, some can, really well, but those are the ones that are wave hogs. ban the creeps! and, by the way, i thought they were actually illegal, if you read the law concerning beach safety reg's. why dont we enforce those laws, instead of most blackball areas? rant over...

IMHO
One of the best surfers on the planet
no doubt

Surfline's video called Lairds Lefts, from some time past has him surfing a 30 footer and like smacking off the lips a few times
He is an amazing surfer, period.

Full credit to Laird for what he does, for sure, but.....the rest still stands.

where on earth has laird ever promoted "white supremacy"???? wtf? LOL sounds to me like you guys just hate him for your own insecurities and are grasping at reasons to do it. and if you've read his book force of nature you'd know that he DOES "work on the inside". he's not some big, dumb blonde musclehead. he's actually a pretty deep, thoughtful guy, who also happens to have a body like a machine (which he works hard to maintain, especially at age 47 (?) ), blonde hair and a tan (hello? he lives in HAWAII). if anyone's being a lunkhead, it's those of you who are shitting on him because he's everything that you're not.

Here's Gerry Lopez's take on it. Y'all have heard of Gerry Lopez, right? LOL

Gerry: You told me about the new bumper sticker that says, ‘Blame Laird.’ And I think it’s kinda incomplete, because those guys haven’t discovered how great standup is. It should be ‘Blame Laird for everyone having fun again.’
