Top-Ten Surf Tweets of the Week -Kelly Keeps Us Guessing

July 14th, 2011 | By | 1,261 Comments

To quote Dusty Payne, “Unless you’re on tour or in a video, it’s easy to fall off the map unless you start an original blog or twitter.” So the surf chatter on twitter has blown up with shit talking, rumors, travel tips, contest results, surf reports, and more.

It wouldn’t surprise me if sponsors reward the amount of “followers” surfers get, just like other exposure benchmarks written into contracts. Twitter is the perfect outlet for surfers due to it’s lack of etiquette, enabling pros mask years of missing English class for surf comps.

Here’s a few favorite tweets covering the gamut of banter flying around this week in the surf world:

Jordy claims he’s bluffing
Kelly Slater
Hundred dollar flight…thousand dollar mistake
Alana Blanchard
Huntington Beach bad-breath
Roy Powers
And don’t over estimate either…
Surfing Magazine
There’s obviously no drug testing on tour
Fred Patacchia
Who says big name surfers don’t run the tour?
Julian Wilson
Domma saying what we’re all thinking
Doomas Rumas
The goofiest goofy-footer ever
Matt Wilko
Son of the year
Ian Walsh
This is naughty. Follow at your own risk!/Rottmouth
Rotton Mouth
