The World Surf League is jumping into hot Disney water by publicly opposing a popular but controversial political bill in Hawaii!

“Hand holding and kissing are absolutely necessary every day.”

The great Shaun Tomson, a man who redefined backside tuberiding at Pipeline in 1975 and won a world title at twenty-two, revealed his new turn as a wedding officiant.

Tomson, who is sixty-six, and who once told Tracks magazine that he remembered hits where “I was so in control of my mind and my body, I actually felt like I was in control of the wave itself” , explained the career change on LinkedIn.

A few days ago I celebrated my first wedding and married Erin and Patch O’Brien, right on the sandstone reef of beautiful Windansea Beach.

The bride and groom were beaming with love, beaming at the crashing waves.

That’s what I read…

Many years ago, I wrote a simple surfer’s code – a list of values ​​– to inspire young people. The code had 12 lines – each line beginning with the words “I will”.

Surfer’s Code was a distillation of everything I had learned from surfing and ultimately was one of the main reasons my life followed my current path of empowering people.

Simple lines of metaphor like I will always row and take the fall with commitment.

Today, hundreds of thousands of people around the world write their own codes to inspire themselves, their colleagues and classmates.

However, the Code speaks for itself – words beginning with I want.

Marriage concerns a collective, us rather than me.

So with the experience of my 35 years of marriage to my beautiful daughter Carla, through happiness and sadness, hope and despair, and above all deep and deep love, I thought of creating a code of wedding for Patch and Erin.

M – MUTUAL MISSION We will have the mutual mission to make us happy – because happiness is one of the fundamental objectives of our life

A – AFFECTION We will be affectionate – holding hands and kissing are absolutely necessary every day – Physical connectedness keeps us together and sustains and maintains our love

R – RELAX, RENEW AND REFRESH – We will relax, renew and refresh together and apart – sometimes separate times are needed to make time together even more special

A – ROCKSTAR We’ll both understand that we’re married to a rockstar and sometimes rockstars have to fend for themselves, so we’ll let the little things slide so we can rock another day. Some arguments aren’t worth having, and some battles aren’t worth fighting. Instead, crank up the music and rock with the rockstar.

I – INTELLIGENCE We will understand that no matter how smart we think we are, we will only be right 50/% of the time, giving you a mouthful of mud

A – ACCEPTANCE We will accept each other as we are because it is with him that we have both fallen in love. As Billy Joel sings in Just the way you are: Don’t gochanging, to try and please me, I could not love you not better, I love you just the way you are

G – GOOD & GOD We will be good to each other and to each other and we will remember God in our lives and relationships. Goodness and God means faith and hope to sustain today, tomorrow and always.

E – EMPATHY We will have empathy and we will understand each other during difficult and difficult times – there will be difficult times, but when one or both of us fall, together we will lift the other up and we will rise again whole.

All very nice, though I’m thinking of the famous quote from Mrs. Jerry Hall, OG model, married to Mick Jagger and Rupert Murdoch, who points out the evil brain of a lizard.

“My mother said it was simple to keep a man, you have to be a maid in the living room, a cook in the kitchen and a whore in the bedroom. I said I would hire the other two and take care of the bedroom,” Hall joked.
