A Post Summer News List

by The Editors on September 15, 2021

There’s a question we asked ourselves, while watching The Ultimate Surfer — Is this the pinnacle of surf entertainment? Was merging a group of washed and ok surfers with Survivor the best idea ever conceived by a man formerly employed by Oprah? Then we asked a followup: if we can seriously consider the first question, then what business do we have choosing stories for a long list of important action sporting news? The answer to the second question was is easy. We have no business. None whatsoever. Enjoy!

RIP: Rick “Rockin’ Fig” Fignetti

by The Editors on July 18, 2021

To SoCal surfers of a certain age there was no better sound to hear on a morning drive to Newport or Huntington Beach than Rockin’ Fig’s surf report on KROQ. His reassuring voice let us all know that whatever else was going on in the world, things were going to be much better once we reached the beach.

For decades no Huntington Beach surf event went off without Fig on the mic. His smooth, sing-song vocal stylings came to typify what a surfer sounded like and few who hold a surf mic today would deny the influence Fig had on their announcing style. Sadly, Fignetti died of a heart attack on Friday, July 16, 2021. He was 64 years old.

Laylan Connelly has a great rememberance of Fig in the Orange County Register. We will all miss him greatly. Our thoughts are especially with his girlfriend Andrea Roberson.
