Sign Spinners…WTF?

So as I was sitting at a stop light over the weekend, I couldn’t help but notice two sign spinners on opposites sides of the street going to town with their sign-spinning maneuvers. Sign spinning has been a growing phenomenon for a couple of years now with (largely) young guys spinning their signs in ever increasing difficulty to grasp passer-byers’ attention. From what I observed, it seems to have morphed into some kind of fierce pop-and-lock, break-dance spin-off with these two guys trying to outdo each other with their gyrating spins, tosses and moves. And I’ll admit, they caught my attention. But while I sat watching them for the couple of minutes I was stuck at the light, I could not read what it was they were advertising on their signs, nor could I tell in which direction their arrows were supposed to be directing our attention? So I ask, what’s the point?


Anyhow, surf this weekend was very fun. You wouldn’t have known there is such a thing as “urban runoff” by the number of people out in the water (myself included) after it rained on Friday night, so I guess no one seems to care anymore about waiting 72 hours until after it rains before going back out in the water. It was a very consistent 2 -4 foot with bigger sets and decent shape. The bigger sets were walled up but the in-betweeners were super fun. The trash on the beach Sunday was disgusting though.

And on another note, LT is back! Hella…

  1. My bumper sticker reads: “Sign Spinners do it with Coroplast”. It’s good weekend work. Earn some extra cash, listen to music, get a workout, and people watch.
