A beard like this will get you set waves in NorCal all by itself.

I assure you, it will not.

It's a sign that I read too many gossip blogs that I expected this to be about closeted gay surfers.

Beards! Wish I could grow one. SurfersI Wish I could be one. Surfers-always the cool kids.
I have spent more than 30 minutes watching an ASP event, but I'm not normal. I find it enchanting.
On a side note; what the hell is this? Some kind of petrified water elk? Seriously! WTF? He better not be making a surf board out of that damn thing.

I've subscribed to Surfer Mag for at least 30 years. I guess they've officially run out of topics if we're talking about beards now...

My bf is a surfer who, to my annoyance, is incapable of growing a proper beard. This link will be such excellent taunting material for me. I wonder if he can introduce me to any of them... hrm...

The Beard; enjoying a renascence? I think it all started in 2001 as pictures of SOF in Afghanistan started permeating the press. The Beard is back baby! Its just taken a while to grow in.

Bud's beard is no longer, due to an ultimatum from a lady friend.

If she was giving that ultimatum, she should no longer have the privilege of being his lady friend, I say.

RIP you glorious beard.

The question, Charlemagne, is "when will this clean shaven fetish end?"

Beards have always been with us.

Dear lord I hope never. Beards are the thing which make me go "ping", and I love that they are becoming more widespread and have a greater variety now than they did even just a couple of years ago.

My own beard is starting to get epic. Not sure where it's going yet, but it's on its way there....

Its hard enough for women to get featured in Surfer Mag in an average article, let alone this one.
