In this episode of The Surfing Podcast we talk to Surfline writer and surf journalist Dashel Pierson about his series of articles “Simpo Is My Surf Coach” in which he received professional surf coaching from WCT veteran Brett Simpson.

And we hear how he published the video results of this coaching along with each article for the entire surf world to see, judge and comment on.

Dashel is a  great guy, solid surfer and most likely one of the bravest goofyfoots to ever wax a surfboard.

Who writes multiple articles about themselves being coached on how to surf better that include accompanying video clips and then leaves the commenting function open on said articles?

A surfer/journalist/uber human with balls of pure titanium (and possibly even adamantium) infused steel.

Some folks’ online comments were (unwarrantedly) brutal and Dashel took them all in stride.

He even saves some of the best/worst comments and hatemail he gets in a special folder on his computer desktop.

Dashel was  a lot of fun to have on the show and interview. And we hope to have him on again in future.

  3. In Search of Mo’ Flow
  4. Confession: I Surf with a Hunchback
  5. Timing Is Everything…Even in Surfing
