Really Dusty?

I'm not sure how I missed this kerfluffle, but pro-surfer Dusty Payne said some pretty negative things about female surfers in the surf flick Lost Atlas, spewing about how girls are “terrible” at surfing and “sit on the boat waiting for the surf to die down to 1 foot waves so that they can go out and do their tail slides.” Really, Dusty?!

Now I don't feel so bad about mocking him for being scared out of the water at the Rip Curl Pro Search by a fin (most likely belonging to a dolphin, much more common at Ocean Beach than sharks).

But kudos to Carissa Moore, female surfer extraordinaire, for taking his comments as inspiration. Watch her dedication at the Surfer Poll Awards:
Way to go, Carissa!
