I am a tall man, maybe 6’3, and trim. I love it. I feel genetically superior to almost everyone. I thank the Lord each morning when I wake.

Owen Wright is a taller man too, and trim. Such a specimen! And if he doesn’t thank the Lord, he should.

“Ahhh, yeah, you know, it’s not bad being tall and thin. The best part? I like being able to walk into a club and scope all the girls, scope everyone around. Being taller you can. Do I think tall men are evolutionarily more advanced? Mmmmmmm. No, but it does seem there are so many more tall guys around now, eh? I know that being tall for me is better. I’ve always been pretty tall. I kinda grew consistently all through my life. I just grew the other week, in fact. I wasn’t 6’3, I was just under. But I measured the other day and now I am 6’3.

It is funny to walk around the contest sites. A lot of the veterans are shorter guys but more of the new kids coming up are taller. And now I am officially the tallest guy on tour. When I was rehabbing my knee, Steds came into the gym and we stood back to back. I won.”

Michael J. Fox once said, “There is not a hell of a lot I can do about being short. You just gotta run with it.” Michael J. Fox starred in Teen Wolf.
Julia Child once said, “Being tall is an advantage, especially in business. People will always remember you. And if you’re in a crowd, you’ll always have some clean air to breathe.” Julia Child just makes the best boeuf bourguignon ever!

    This writing is awful. Not even funny. Tom Hanks once said, “Wow, I never thought I would rather read the typical rim-job contest coverage that normally occurs with pro surfing.” Tom Hanks was in teen wolf!

    OMG! Give this article a Pulitzer, like, right now!
    I’ve read it, like, 2 times already. I had to shut the door to, like, totally imerse myself in the intelectual depths and sociological/biological/scientifical implications of this golden piece of shi… uhh, i mean this golden piece of journalism.
    No wonder you feel superior to everyone, with such displays of cutting-edge writting how could you not? I’m 6’2 and trim, and I too feel superior to most everyone. I just couldn’t pass the opportunity to, like, thank you for once again exemplifying with such clarity the relation between height and inteligence. 5/5!!

    relax short guys. it’s a tongue & cheek article. Besides, the real trick is being tall and lean. I’m 6’2″ and it takes a lot of effort not to gain weight and get too heavy for my boards. So there you have it, the tough part.
