Guff's mum watched him surf one day and decided, from that day on, to make him wear a flourescent wetsuit. In her heart, she knew it wasn't just because he was 'special'. It was really so that the authorities would have an easier time finding his body someday. But she tried not to think about that. She just knew that paddling out in freezing water and getting pounded constantly made Guff happy. The End.

He was actually trying to bodysurf it...the board in the air is from the wang that tried to drop in on him, but was escorted out the back door by the better wave rider.

That`s what I thought. A real back snapper. I`d like to hear from the surfer himself to know how many times he span over. It aint big but that still knocks the stuffing out of you.

We've all done it, your checking out the talent from the balcony at a Magaluf foam party nightclub, you spot your target....move down the stairs towards her and.....Wham! you slip on some fuckwits spilt drink ending up spread eagle on the dance floor. Everybody parts leaving you there on your arse looking up at the ring of faces all looking back with expressions of discust. "Beam me up Scottie" you say to yourself..."Come on lads we're going, this place is shit anyway" you say, as you turn to see your buddies back up the stairs doubled up with laughter pissing themselves... What a proper SPAZ!
