Why judge surfing dreams?
What happened to the dreams of surfing? What fool marks their dreams with the deliberation of judges? When these judges speak it is as if there is a truth in their words (the words of the Association of Surfing Professionals, the commentator, the journalist, the blogger, the fan, the surfing corporations, the capitalist) rather than in the direct reality of the person sliding across the wave. To judge is to limit what one sees, and one simply misses the point. It is those who continuously resist this symbolic deception/fiction who continue to believe in surfing dreams. Although, these dreamers err also, as they only believe themselves (one is never untouched by the judgements). But at least this is an honest mistake, unlike the other.
