...LOST The Decline of Surfing Civilization

This is one of my all time favorite surf videos, raw surfing by some hardcore guys. Has the same great punk rock soundtrack that accompanies all ...lost videos. Classic.

In 1989 Christian Fletcher was seen on all the covers busting six foot airs. Twelve years later the magazines have regressed to putting fabricated idols on the cover ding nothing more than six inch chop hops all because of sponson advertising dollars. In the meantime, Taylor "Almost Famous" Steele and his band of hollywood wanna bees are basking in their self appointed glory, playing golf and dreaming up more staged video skits starring none other than themselves. Somehow they believe we actually care. Surfing isn't only about world tour contests or going on photo trips with a bunch of guys who aren't even your friends.

So while the so called surf industry is busy glorifying things only the pros do, were at least ATTEMPTING to get back to the real surf culture. Its all about having a good time with your friends,; surfing at home from 2' chop to 10' closeouts; ging on road trips, enjoyin the freedom of youth and extending that freedom for as many years as possible... (wile the masses arond us chase a preprogrammed homogenized version of the american dream). How long will the youth stumble blindly, "stoned" by a long since established "liberation" movement? We wont fall for that. No more having he covers pulle over our eyes. The industry may call this The Decline, but we're doing just fine
