Protest When did San Clemente get so badass?

In the local news today there were reports of yet another protest of the perceived loss of some of the civil liberties we Americans enjoy under the wonderfully adaptable document titled the US Constitution.

Watch: “Big smiles on dials” The Goldie has been on the cook.

Our friends at mySURF TV sent over this banger clip of what can only be described as some beach break perfection.

Watch: Chapter 11 TV Surfing’s contradiction: Dane Reynolds

As most have seen by now, Dane just dropped two new clips produced by his ironically titled Chapter 11 project. With his loyal cohort Mini Blanchard behind the lens and pulling the levers, it would appear that Dane is indeed back in the entertainment biz. All good, of course. However, Dane’s latest creative output did…

Watch: “Morroco Aint Easy” Von Froth Episode #4

They say timing is everything. Apparently so in the case of Nic Von Rupp. It would seem our ‘ol pal Nic was busy stacking some clips just prior to the whole COVID scare. However, instead of just a short vid or two to release during this down time, Nic has a whole freaking series in…
