Below you’ll find four of the most fu—ked up “surf videos” you’ve ever seen and it’s all our fault. You see, we came up with the Cali Rally as a way to torture pro surfers as a penance of sorts for having the best “jobs” in the world. We awarded teams points for stunts such as smoking a hippie’s dreadlock, jumping into contaminated creeks and rivers, surfing Bird Rock dressed a Bird Rock Bandit, and more ridiculous/funny/gay/absurd/even more gay/and hilarious shit (see below for the full list o challenges). So, for your viewing pleasure (or disgust) sit back, relax, and watch what these guys will do for fame and glory and the overall title of 2010 Cali Rally Champions (Sector 9).
