Real tough call.

The Nub Nation or Spaceship Earth?

"For the win" or "No corners no crowds."

Which Youtube sensation has won you over? And who's Gofundme account are you pay paling to 'keep the dream alive?'

Life's a real trip, keep pushing on guys.

Nub Nation.....is ego free and goes after anything...admittedly younger, but also sober which is cool. Plus he came up here and surfed, OR/WA so bonus points there.

Never seen the Malibu guy, he is in a dark space, MLazor, check his rant on traffic and development of the Bu....again confirms my earlier comment on CA properties in your coast beer thread, nice derail by the way!

Haven't tuned into the Illusion in quite some time. But.... I do like him and agree with many of his views. As far as OR and PNW cred goes, the Illusion lived in NEPDX sometime back in the early 90's long before it got played out. Not sure if he surfed, but sure he prob shreded Burnside on the regs. Ben just passed through...... and outed Boiler. Not that I really care, but kids these days...... let me tell ya.

I am going with the Illusion for a couple reasons; GenX'er vs Millennial so I can relate, gets way deeper philosophically, and the dude still rips on a skateboard. WE have friends in common and I know he's a good dude. Ben is a happy go lucky Millennial, which is great but we will see how long his fame lasts (not long in today's digi-tech-ADD world) and how jaded he gets when he hits mid life, back goes out, and has to work a regular job :lol:

Too easy. The Illusion is high frequency vibes and Ben Gravy, uh, doesn't really register on my scale.

Gonna go with Ben Gravy, cause as far as I can tell, the Illusion is just a talk boarder. While Gravy actually puts himself out there on a soft top.

Okay, that's pretty hardcore.

Hillbomb was decent but not sure if I can forgive him for go-proseuring it in Chile. Still can't tell if he actually surfs or not.

I have to admit, I have been watching alot more of the Illusion these days. He is spot on with some of his observations.

The Illusion operates on all levels at the highest frequency possible. I submit today's Mullet maintenance
as the latest example.

Both dudes are running low on material. Low frequency repetitious vibes.

Although,

"No nets, no balls"

and

"No corners, no crowds"

will keep the Illusion going for a long time in my book.
