The kook is a slap in the face to Rob.
All I can say about the new one is, “Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting!”
looks like the silver surfer from fantastic four
looks like a 10 time world champion!!!
Is this one going to get dressed up weekly as well?
I want to call into question the whole notion of surf statues. It’s really about the wave.
Retarded! There I said it!
well it is better – but like the comment above a surf statue (without a wave) looks out of context or lacks context. It might be easier with a lopezian or duke k clasical manefestian but that is in its own way an icon vs a bit of current representation of surfy style.
that said the kook deserves all the derrision and sh*t it gets – long live the SHARK! that was such an appropriate improvement on the abomination
hey has anyone ever put up a statue (gorilla art) of “guy mowing yard” or anything at the sculpter of the kooks house?
where is this statue? is it like a florida thing?
its those damn arms on the kook. just bend the arms down and take out some of the flip in the wrists and it wont look so….g….. nevermind
i think he’s facing the wrong way…
that aint surfing
the HB statue is the ONE

lmao flordia is cooler for surfing than SD.SUCKERS!
why do they always find the stupidest poses? makes no sense without the wave behind him..kelly doing that – cool, statue doing that – not cool.
They could at least given him his hair back?
Ahh… Grass Hopper …. Snatch the pebble from my hand.
They figured it out at Tourmo. A plaque with an image of Frye in mid-glide. It sends the appropriate message. Somebody wrote that it is about the wave–that right, no surfer is bigger than the energy.
This is on coca beach Florida where slater surfed it does look like he is a nija about to ninja chop someome
They say that statue can withstand some pretty ridiculous wind in Florida it better!
it is dynamic and athletic but what does it say. would someone that doesn’t surf have any idea what is going on?
Someone should be proud of their Photoshopping skills. I love the Cardiff Kook on the wave. Well done! I laughed out loud.
Should have photoshopped the Kook on a Makaha “backlashed” wave… flounder!
Kelly Slater is a million-dollar, plastic, super-hero action figure. His statue will come to life at night to fight crime and keep safe your hometown streets. Sleep well, America (and Quiksilver stockholders).
