Cooper Chapman is no slouch — he’s actually quite motivated. And he stands tall in barrels.

Give Cooper Chapman a lemon and he’ll make lemonade. Give him an almond-shaped barrel and he’ll do this instead of making stupid hippie almond butter.

And that every time he gets barreled, a Bill Cosby eats a slice of uncured ham. There were a lot of cold cuts for Bill this trip. A lot of cold cuts.

We were told that these photos are from Papua New Guinea. They are not. They are from some obscure corner of the earth that harbors amazing, empty surf. Luke Davis, Cooper Chapman and Mikala Jones went there (wherever it is) and found just that. In a day and age where the internet spoils almost every secret, there are no loose lips that are willing sink this ship. And can’t help but respect that. Oh, and envy it.
