On Sundays I take a break from regular posting, nurse my hangover, and highlight reader comments. But I'm not sure if there's any need to fan the flames of the multiple controversies that are still burning in the comments sections this week.
So I'll shed light on a totally unrelated shit storm that got started when Anthony W. commented on Portugal. In reference to what? I have no idea. I guess Anthony read some other comments that had nothing to do with Portugal, and figured that PostSurf is kinda like a support group where really angry surfers can share their random hostile thoughts.
Now multiple Portuguese websites have picked up the story, and some of them are incorrectly assuming I wrote the comment below. Sweet! Thanks Anthony.

AHAHHAHA… Portugal… country of Tigers… country of the pussiest waveriders ever! When waves get bigger they all run away to the safety bays where it’s 2 foot offshore and make faces of someone getting spit out of an 8 foot pipe barrel on a bogging bottom turn. How did Tiago Pires got that Tiger alias? He looks more like a turtle with weird arm positioning. Is the guy’s neck that short or does he tuck in between his shoulders as protection from the real tigers? God, his surfing makes me wanna vomit… looks just like another brazzo from the wrong side of the Atlantic. Peace out!

Hey you all, with such big balls, just come and join Tiago and all his fellow pussies at their home break. Just have a look at him surfing 2 foot offshore and claiming here… http://postsurf.com/2009/03/21/outsider-art/#comments (Editor's note: this link goes to 70s photos of guys riding two-foot waves.)

Let “The Lewis” be the judge… Tiago Pires, tiger or kook?

Tiger dudes ! Look at this SURFLINE video
And dudes, when Slater saw this video, he freaked out ! And after Bali 08 he said Tiago was one of the best tube riders in the world!
