While hardly a universally captivating discussion topic, surfing certainly inspires a rare, dedicated, and often strange kind of fandom. In that regard, local weirdos and longboard enthusiasts, Chris Tincher and Trenton “Tarpits” Phillips (who also writes Void’s skate column) are perfectly suited to host a pod that delves into the rabbit hole of nuanced and frivolous-yet-super-serious surf topics–especially on a local level. At press time, the duo’s released a dozen or so (fairly lengthy) episodes of surf-related banter.
Though they seem to lament the commodification of the activity (sport?), the Surf Knot team certainly reveres surfing. And if you’re core- and thick-skinned-enough to have your favorite pastime taken to task, Surf Knot’s a worthwhile listen.
