Would “nearly nonexistent” be the same as “not nonexistent?”


#3

That is definitely the most interesting thing about this post, right?
Oy.

Loved the footage, it’s amazing.

Well I’m not qualified to comment on the surfing, but at least I can be a smartass about the grammar.

~8500 instances in academic papers and ~19000 in books, so it’s nearly non-noteworthy. I liked the alliteration, and I’d think a pedant would know that “nearly” and “not” aren’t synonyms. The worst you can say is the phrase is nearly incorrect, but it’s definitely not incorrect.

So pitted.


#7

Also. Gnarly waves.

Oh hellz yeah…

Can’t see a surf video without going back and rewatching the intro cut to the Billabong Odyssey - Mike Parsons on a 60ft wave.
