“THERE ARE BASICALLY TWO SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT.”

“Which are?”

“Well, the first says that a girl will be attracted to a guy that walks by her with a clean, new surfboard in the same way she’s attracted to white smiles and nice cars. It’s sorta a status symbol.”

“Now I ain’t sayin’ she a gold digger…”

“Right. But one could also argue that a girl will be attracted to a guy that walks by her with a yellowed, well-worn shortboard, because that guy’s got some stories to tell.”

“Or he’s just poor.”

“It doesn’t matter, story trumps poor eight times out of ten.”

“So you’re telling me that a weathered surfboard gets you girls?”

“Dude, these are just bullshit theories. If you’re confident and listen to them you could rock up with a Wavestorm and they’d still swoon. So you might as well ride what makes you rip.”
