Josh Warthen continued his fairytale run on the Big Break with those slightly awkward and slightly f’ing amping words last night. Now he’s rolling straight into the final episode of the show with a legitimate chance for a sponsors’ exemption at a PGA tour event. I’ll be honest, I was over this show for about a month cuz there were too many dudes, too much golf, and not enough Warthen. All the golfers said he was getting lucky and all the critics said he was overmatched. But if someone can pull Adolescence out of their ass after only a couple years in the sport of bodyboarding, I had a gut feeling that Josh had something simmering on the backburner for this desert showdown with his highly experienced Asian counterpart. From the dramatic music to the extreme facial closeup cutaways to Josh’s own freaking golfcam, this was entertainment! He wavered with some of his questionable on-field comments, but not with his golfing. Now we’ve got Grover Groupies in heat and Santa Maria Times bloggers licking their chops for the final episode which stages Warthen against another experienced veteran in Brian Kontak. Check it out next Tuesday night on the Golf Channel.
As far as bodyboarding goes, we finally got the goods posted from Kellen and Cale’s semi-recent Mainland adventure and rolled it over into an etcetera. If you didn’t believe in Cale before, you best be believing now. Here’s a quick synopsis from Kellen who also wrote the captions for the feature:
Here’s a shitload of fg’s from the trip I’ll send you some pictures that Cale got as well. Pretty much your standard Mex trip – we got shacked all morning ’til noon and slammed back all day ’til we had to sleep. Good times and a good trip. Peace.
We’ve also added/fixed some links to our last post if you didn’t catch them. Lastly, we wanted to spread rumors about an upcoming 805 article in Bodyboarder Magazine too. Keep your eyes peeled for future issues with some Central Coast love.
