Dear PacBRO,

 

Thank you for contacting BRO-CAL and for your constructive criticism.  Based on your comments, we can understand why you never got your own idea for BRO-CAL off the ground.  Please write us back with your mailing address so we can send you some free stickers to put on your lifted baja truck and rep BRO-CAL to the fullest in the Inland Empire.

 

Rock on,
Team BRO-CAL

Not Your Ordinary Wave

Garrett McNamara

So we're sure you've all heard by now, Garrett McNamara is claiming this wave as "the biggest wave ever ridden".  This wave, claimed to be around 90 feet, is a contender for the Guinness Book of World Records, and would overtake Mike "Snips" Parsons' monster at Cortes Bank which is the current numero uno.  We're not gonna lie, this is a big freaking wave, so mad props to Garrett.  However, we recently learned that Garrett is sponsored by Wavejet (see earlier blog post on this topic) which means we will have to subtract 20 feet from the alleged size of this wave.  Sorry bro.

It's a Bird! It's a Plane! It's a Wavejet?!?

Wavejet Groupies

Shoot us now, there is something coming to a break near you that is far worse than a kook on a SUP.  Welcome to your worst nightmare - the Wavejet. The Wavejet is a surfboard that comes in various sizes, ranging from a sponger to a 10' long SUP.  Only this is no ordinary surfboard.  No, this surfboard contains an integrated propulsion system that runs on lithium ion batteries that can give you up to 75 minutes of thrust while you're kooking it up.  The purpose of this propulsion system is to assist surfers in paddling out to their favorite break, as well as paddling into (and catching) waves easier.  It's also meant to annoy the crap out of every surfer in the lineup around you and make you look like a total douche-bag.  No self respecting bro would be caught dead riding one of these things unless they were paid hefty sums of cash.  As a result of this product hitting the market, our R&D team here at BRO-CAL will be devoting all of their time to developing an Anti-Wavejet Gun to combat any Wavejet kooks that happen to motor into your lineup.  We are taking pre-orders now.  Thank you.

We present to you the Hangboard - a new way to snowboard.  Having never tried this, we can't weigh in our opinion, but it does look interesting.  Our question is, will this new invention be like the Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) to the surf industry, where all normal snowboarders hate every hangboarding bro on the mountain?  You tell us!

Prop 19 Goes Up In Smoke

 Prop 19 Goes Up in Smoke

Proposition 19 went up in smoke today because all the stoners in BRO-CAL forgot to go out and vote.  We can't say we are too disappointed by the fact that marijuana was not legalized yesterday, but unfortunately we did have to spend some extra time at the BRO-CAL HQ tonight removing the 25 square foot "ganja farm" we had planted in anticipation of this law actually passing.  There’s always the next election all you stoner bro’s…
