3 Surf Etiquette Rules You Should Know

Hey Kooks ! Tune in this week as Coach Chris and Coach Evan chill at their favorite hilltop to discuss 3 surf etiquette rules you should definitely know, and maybe a story or two about how we learned these things the hard way. If you're a new surfer--hell, if you're an experienced surfer you're going to loose your marbles when you hear these tales how about we've KOOKED it and learned to be better surfers the hard way.


Welcome to the Team feat. Coach Evan

This week on the KookCast I'm introducing my dear friend and partner in surf education, Coach Evan. With a lifetime of experience in the ocean, and supported by a family that grooms their young ones to be competent water people, there's no shortage of comedy, education, and loving sentiment in Coach Evan's history. Tune in and get to know a little more about the toughest surf coach you'll ever have the pleasure of progressing with.


When Legends Speak, Kooks Should Listen feat. Tony Caramanico

This week on the KookCast I had the honor of sitting down with surf legend, Tony Caramanico. When you fall in love with something like surfing, simply "doing it" is not want to know everything about it. The history, evolution, important figures, especially the little behind the scene info you never get from the surf mags or other industry contributors. That's why I asked Tony to talk to me personally. And when legends speak, kooks should listen. Tune in and learn heaps. yew!


Committed to the Kook Life ! feat. Jules Sheehan

This week on the Kookcast I had Jules Sheehan on the show. Without a doubt the most dedicated and committed beginner surfer I've ever met. Of course, when you surf everyday and you're accident prone, you're bound to catch a few injuries per year. Tune in and learn more about how Jules somehow finds herself in the midst of chaos and calamity a little more often than chance should allow, and if you see her in the lineup let her know you're a fellow kook with a friendly hoot (yeww!) from a...


Surf for Life feat. Jim Wandzilak

My favorite kind of surfer is the kind that never stops. That's why I asked veteran surfer, Jim Wandzilak to come on the show and talk with me about surfing into your 60s and beyond. He shared some of his advice on how to surf for life, and he doesn't care if his solutions appear kooky or not. You know what I think, right? I'm going to take his advice and make sure I'm still surfing when I'm 60. Thanks for the tips, Jim! yew!


Learn to Surf! with Julien Raguzzi

This week on the KookCast I tried something new and video recorded the entire episode at Georges Lighthouse Cafe in Montauk, NY. I was joined by my guest and new friend Julien Raguzzi to talk about learning to surf. Julien is a brand new surfer, and came to work with me the other day to gain a little guidance on what he should be trying to work on while teaching himself to surf. Passionate, powerful, and studious, Julien was the perfect student, and KookCast guest. yew!


Sorry Slater ! feat. Liam Tracy

You know when you accidentally find yourself at a World Surf League party in NYC, spend time chatting with the top 34 surfers in the world, and spill your beer all over Kelly Slater? No? Well then you should listen to Liam tell his version of that exact situation, and how he managed to stay friends with the best surfers in the world despite his kooky behavior. This is the KookCast...enjoy, yew !


Surf School is in Session feat. Mike & Mike from Locals Surf School

Welcome to another episode of the "Kookcast". Tune in while I visit the aptly named "kook house" just outside of New York City to chat with the two surf instructors that founded Locals Surf School in Rockaway Beach, Mike Reino and Kook Mike, to discuss all kinds of info new surfers crave. From funny stories about students, to funny stories about themselves, we're all just a bunch of kooks trying to learn to surf, so what? Yew! Check out this episode!


Did Ya Get The Shot!? feat. Sascha Mazzucco

How many surfers do you know that every time they surf, they get a killer shot from whatever photographer is standing on the beach? While they're getting all these great shots, poor ol Sascha is just trying to get one decent shot of himself, just once in his life, but to no avail. His hilarious stories about seeking photo validity leads to an important conclusion about why he started surfing in the first place. Ya live & ya learn, yew !


Trump Don't Surf! feat. Tyler Allen

It's not easy being the president of the United States. With so many world problems to solve it leaves little time for surfing among other things. That's why in this episode of the KookCast I'm fortunate enough to get a couple minutes of Donald's time to talk about surfing, his wave pool (which is obviously better than Slater's), and scoring massive Cloudbreak without anyone noticing he isn't at home in The White House. Oh yea, and I get to speak with Tyler Allen too. Enjoy episode 5, yew!


DING DING DING: You're a Kook feat. Erik Schwab

As The KookCast goes, episode 2 comes after episode. 3. Anyone still wondering what a kook is? It's a host that miscounts his episodes. In this episode I sat down with teacher and surfer Erik Schwab to talk about surfboard mishaps, Hawaiian surf trips, stinky wetsuits, & much more. Enjoy listening to everyones friend, Erik Schwab who keeps it humble, lighthearted, & obviously--kooky. If you see him in the line up, make sure you let him know you're a fellow kook by belting out a hoot his...


Mind Your Leash feat. Dr. Travis Koke

In this episode I sit down with good friend & great human, Dr. Travis Koke, a practicing physician & surfer to share a few great tales. We kick it off with how he learned the hard way to mind your leash when you walk—especially if you’re not walking, but running with it attached to your ankle. Also in discussion, big waves, almost dying, & did I actually say I’m attracted to men who ride big waves? Hah, there must have been a better way to say that. Geez, this podcasting thing is hard, but...


When a Pig has a Kook Roast feat. William Hahn

In this episode I chat with my dear friend William Hahn. A builder and surfer, you’ll be hard pressed to find a dude with a wider smile--except maybe on the day he got arrested for burning some herb in the lot before going out to surf. Or the time he was 12, paddled out & got accosted by someone who’s name rhymes with Tim Holdberg. Sheesh, all he did was kook it a little bit. Other than those two days, I'm pretty sure that smile is plastered on permanently, as will yours after this...


Surf Through Your Mid-Life Crisis feat. Johan Kugelberg

In this episode Coach Chris sits down with surf student Johan Kugelberg to listen (& sometimes drift off) while Johan runs away with the show. Typically in surf coaching sessions, Chris is accustomed to being the expert while Johan plays the very studious pupil. But when sitting down to talk otherwise, its clear the tables have turned. In a setting of conversation and thoughtful discussion, Johan is the expert of eloquence, & your host is the kook without words. yew !
