Anagrams in surfing: meet pro surfer Mack Finning | Photo: Quiksilver

There you go. Here's an article for Scrabble addicts, anagram enthusiasts, and word lovers. Warning: the following lines contain absurd, explicit, and surreal letters turned into words.

Surfers score Perfect 10-point rides, but when their names enter the unscramble machine, you don't always get flawless wordplay.

In some cases - John John Florence, Julian Wilson, Jordy Smith, Adriano de Souza, Conner Coffin, and Matt Banting - computer says "no."

Nevertheless, we've grabbed the World Surf League's Championship Tour (CT) roster and rearranged the pro surfing names that could be scrambled.

The linguistic outcome got us down on the floor laughing on various occasions.

For example: did you know that Maria Bleeding is a former world surfing champion? Where does King Nausea come from? Who is Medal Malign?

So, next time you pick a surfer name for your baby, run it through the unscramble generator just to ensure they won't be bullied at school.

We believe we found the best and funniest scrambled anagrams with surfers' names, but if you don't trust Rusty Fedora (Surfer Today) while driving their Ford Estuary (Surfer Today), feel free to make your own semantic suggestions - we'll publish them below.
