Classic surfers are about hanging ten, getting barreled, and talking about the good ol' days before all the "kids" started messing everything up. "Messing everything up," as in pulling airs, riding small boards, and listening to loud, fast music. The backflip air seemed mythological until the Volcom put up the bounty, and Timmy Curran walked away with cash in hand.
