Re:...Lost Ads - 2009/11/08 17:33 Classic - hmmm.

So what's the message? If you are not a "real" surfer, but just some wannabe, attracted by the image/lifestyle, then you should stay away... Sounds good so far. But duhhh... who is telling you this flattering message, and why? Well of course its a surf company, trying to pretend that surfing is some exclusive 'tribe' - so that their brand is somehow more hard core and cool.

Which is kind of ironic, if you think about it, as the huge influx of wannabes into surfing has been caused by, er surf clothing brands making a fortune (for themselves) promoting the lifestyle.... whilst killing it for real surfers.

And you think its "cool" that these commercial parasites are 'defending' the real surfers - if you fell for that then you are the ad man's wet-dream, and imho, a bit of an idiot - as you are now giving them free advertising by starting this thread. Do you work for Lost by any chance?

Re:...Lost Ads - 2009/11/10 15:12 Yes I do think these ads are "cool". I started this thread to share What I saw with other surfers. I don't work for lost nor do I own anything they make. I don't need to wear a bunch of main brand clothing.
I think it's funny how offended you are by these ads. You must be the very person these ads are talking about. Why did you start surfing? Let me guess, you saw endless summer and you were hooked.

Re:...Lost Ads - 2009/11/10 22:19 well its not like theres not enough ocean for everyone and theres not enough awesome waves out there to share. but if your just out there for the image of "im a surfer" than the only person your hurtin is yourself, the real reason u should surf is becasue you love too. it doesnt matter how good you are, how long youve been surfing or anything else. the only thing that matters is the shere love for the sport.
