The Top Ten
He has the best style and he should be the first or the second
he should at least be number 3.. BEST SURFER EVER!!!!
Watching Taj surf always gets me stoked! He's just got the coolest style and you can always tell he's having fun when he surfs. His good air game doesn't hurt either.
It was Because of him And the Kahanamoku brothers of Waikiki that kept surfing alive in those hard days and we owe everything to him and those guys! Much love Surf god! Plus I still think George Freeth should be up here somewhere!
A Legend and soul surfer. He is the most Inspirational and influential surfer of all the times. I would be very happy to see him surfing with the boards that we have now.
Duke should be number one. The man was a graceful tank in the water what other surfer holds a gold medal in the olympics, and was a movie star in a time were race was a big issue... He won the country over with his aloha. The power and speed needed to surf the gigantic wooden koa boards in the old days I doubt half of the surfers on this list could even control!
awesome take charge of a surfer. Gerry controlled the wave and didn't allow the wave to control him.
You rock layne. I want to be like you when I am older.

The most innovative but sadly not well known surfer ever...
he gave a great contribute to develop surfing, and may be the surf today is what it is also thanks to him.
I suppose I like this choice because it isn't just another dude with multiple worl championships. Plus, he really was (is) a freak talent. Perhaps the most innovative surfer ever in the water. I'd add Butch Van Artsdalen, Dane Kealoha and the entire Fletcher family to the list, along with Larry Bertleman. Kelly Slater is the most talented and the best in every condition though. Perhaps if Buttons had more focus and wasn't so far ahead of his time, he'd have ten world titles.
I lived and surfed northshore for 12 straight years, ask anyone who saw him in action (when he wasn't wasted)- the first driving backside 360, at pipe no less, the first real arial attack, vicious cutbacks, etc - yes bertleman was great but buttons was a the best ever for maybe 2 years...
