Remember cool dads? When I was in high school, my friend Sam’s parents would often go out for an elongated night of dinner and drinks, inadvertently leaving us with an opportunity for adolescent degeneration. And when they’d come home, instead of having to scurry and hide our Molson Ice or whatever stupid beer we were drinking, we’d just let it fly. And instead of Sam’s dad yelling at us, he’d just sort of heckle us through his wine-stained teeth. He was the coolest dad. Until Corey Lopez came along.
Here’s a video of Cory surfing with his daughter Alana on the North Shore. And with that, he officially becomes the coolest dad ever. Sorry, Sam’s dad.
