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

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

Design for Humanity 2011 Runway Show Video

As promised…some saucy (okay, and shaky) footage from last night’s Billabong Design for Humanity fashion show.
Surfing Magazine’s “Partial Bikini Coverage” report tells us that Mandy and the rest of the Billabong design team foraged the thrift stores and Grandma’s closet to complete the crochet-fringed and deconstructed leather looks. Highlights (says us), included some snakeskin skimpies, a fringed sleeve one-piece, and sequined shrug ensemble. What’s your favorite look from the clip?

Cheers to the team at Billabong for another superb showing!

RIP Jonas Bevacqua – Founder of LRG Clothing Co.

The Action Sports Industry lost an icon in fashion and lifestyle today. Jonas Bevacqua, co-founder of the Lifted Research Group passed away in his Laguna Beach home today at the age of 34. He coined the powerful mantra “Underground Inventive, Overground Effective” which united the many voices in Southern California’s skateboard, surfing and hip hop culture.

Jonas was a driving force of positive energy, and will be missed all around the world. Here’s a short video profiling his unique world-view that inspired so many and made LRG no.5 on Entrepreneur Magazine‘s list of the top 500 fastest growing companies.
