Sick-quence! Benny B. is GIF-ted

June 19, 2019 • ESM Sick-quence!, Sick-quence!

More than a click through, frame-by-frame sequence, not quite a full video clip a “GIF” ( pronounced “Jif”, like the peanut butter brand ) is, according to Wikipedia, “a Graphics Interchange Format that is an 8-bit-per-pixel bitmap image format using a palette of up to 256 distinct colors from the 24-bit RGB color space. The format was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability.” Got it? Ben Bourgeois probably doesn’t know a GIF from Jif PBJ sandwhich but he sure as hell still knows how to shred the shit out of a wave with the same type of winning form of the decorated WCT vet he once was during this recent freesurf in south Nags Head, NC.

    I moved to satellite beach because of the world champs, dakine burrito eating surf movie nights, tiki carvers, balsa, long doggger, board houses and esm. Thought this place must have waves everyday. Sadly it doesn’t but I bought my first board from a guy named buddy at quiet. flight who lived with a guy named hobgood and they happened to live on my street Berkeley. When I realized there weren’t epic waves there I moved up to wrightsville to be closer to home and I had heard of Benny from those previous dudes. Went right to sweet water. They were all great guys. I don’t understand how so many great surfers come from the east coast but I think its awesome. After traveling around I wish I had stayed in satellite cause maybe I could be working for Tom Dugan now.
