Surfer Dude: a hit in Fox News

He's called the "Surfer Dude," and he is famous for an enthusiastic interview he gave to Fox News. For many, he's just the stereotype of the classic surfer; for others, he is the funniest rider in the world.

We believe Micah Peasley is the most passionate surfer on Planet Earth, and he's having the time of his life.

The surfer with the Hurley wetsuit shared everything with his hands and corporal gestures. Shall we confirm?

"It's just like... Dude, you get the best barrels ever, dude. It's just like, you pull in, and you just get spit outem,' he once told the Fox News reporter.

"You just drop in, smack the lip... Waapah! Just drop down... Swoopah! And then after that, you just drop in, ride the barrel, and get pitted, so pitted.

Meanwhile, our Californian surfer dude has been a hit over the internet.

Some said he was joking or faking the surf explanation, but the fact is everyone considered him hilarious. In a matter of weeks, there were music remixes with his sayings.

Watch a selection of the best songs of our stoked surfer dude, along with the original interview.

Only a surfer knows the feeling, but if you want to discover the real surfer dude, you have to know who Micah Peasley is.
