Reggie:
THERE ARE A LOT OF GUY SURFERS OUT THERE THAT THINK THEY’RE
SOMETHING SPECIAL. SO BASICALLY, WE WANT
TO SHOW THE WORLD WHAT POWER GIRL
SURFERS CAN DO. IS TRISH COMING? DON’T GET YOUR HOPES UP. ( group murmuring ) LOOK, IT’S ABOUT
SHOWING EVERYONE THAT GIRLS SURF HARD, TOO. WE’RE CALLING IT A “PEACEFUL SURFING
EXPRESSION SESSION PROTEST OF THE MALE-DOMINATED
SURF MAGAZINE INDUSTRY.” I THINK YOU NEED
A CATCHIER TITLE. DOES THIS MEAN YOU’RE IN? LET’S RIP. Kids:
POWER GIRL SURFERS! YEAH! COWABUNGA! REGGIE SURE GOT
A LOT OF PEOPLE TO STAND UP
AND TAKE NOTICE. LIKE THE ANCIENT HAWAIIANS SAY: NEVER PROVOKE THE WRATH
OF A TEN-YEAR-OLD WAHINE. I HAVE NEVER
SEEN SO MANY GIRLS WHO RIP LIKE THIS. START TAKING
PICTURES. I’M GOING TO FIND
THAT ROCKET GIRL. ( camera bulb pops, shutter
clicks, film advance whirs ) EXCUSE ME, CAN I HELP YOU, SIR? YEAH, YOU CAN HELP
BY MOVING OUT OF THE WAY, JUNIOR. LOOK, I’M WITH
GNARLY SURF MAGAZINE. SORRY, NO CAN DO. THIS EVENT IS BEING EXCLUSIVELY
COVERED BY ANOTHER MAGAZINE EDITED AND PUBLISHED BY A GIRL
SURFER NAMED REGGIE ROCKET. MAYBE YOU’RE HEARD OF HER. WHAT?! OH, MAN, LOOK AT
THOSE GIRLS RIP! UH, I HOPE THIS
DOESN’T BLOW MY COVER. THE COVER’S NOT DEAD. SLACK AND HIS
PHOTOGRAPHER ARE HERE. JUST GET OUT THERE
AND SHOW THEM WHAT A REAL CHAMP
SURFS LIKE. Reggie:
“REAL CHUMP” IS MORE LIKE IT. LOOK, REG, JUST
STAY OUT OF THIS. I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU’RE
TRYING TO ACE OTTO OUT OF HIS COVER! LOOK, I’M NOT HERE TO MESS UP OTTO’S COVER
OR ANY OF THAT. WE JUST WANT
TO CHALLENGE YOU TWO TO A LITTLE PEACEFUL,
NONCOMPETITIVE HEAD-TO-HEAD DISPLAY OF SURFING TALENT. I GOT TO SURF
AGAINST TRISH?! SHE’S
REALLY GOOD! Reggie:
YES, COME ON! WHOO-HOO! YEAH! GIRLS CAN’T SURF, HUH? I LIKE YOUR SPUNK. HEY, HOW ABOUT YOUR
OWN COLUMN IN OUR MAGAZINE? SORRY, GUYS,
MY ZINE COMES FIRST. WHAT WAS THAT
ALL ABOUT? I, UM… JUST WANTED
TO SAY I’M SORRY. THANKS. HEY, FORGET
ABOUT GNARLY SURF. THERE’S ALWAYS ROOM FOR YOU
ON THE COVER OF MY ZINE. EVERYBODY, ON THREE,
SAY “CHEESE.” ONE… TWO… ( giggling ) Sam:
THREE! ( shutter clicks ) All:
COWABUNGA!
