Joey Hutson is the latest addition to the “Westside Warriors” current lineup at the Lane. Sometimes it gets so crowded there the water turns into a full gladiator pit¿survival of the fittest. Well, Joey has definitely proven to be one of the fittest. Just last week he snaked me, and as I went to stuff him¿he chucked me over the falls (f¿kin’ bastard).
He looks more like a body builder than a surfer, ’cause he’s sooo flexed out. But it pays off in the power-surfing department¿the punk can throw some water and he drives hard in the tube. Joey’s full of energy, and he explodes whenever he’s in the water. I like surfing with him ’cause he goes outta his way to spray you and get you all pissed. When asked about the future, he replied: “To continue school, blow up in the surfing world, and maybe hit up Mavs soon.”¿Skinz
