They're known to be really intelligent creatures, and what's cool is that two-thirds of an octopus’ neurons reside in its arms, not its head. As a result, the arms can problem solve how to open a shellfish while their owners are busy doing something else, like checking out a cave for more edible goodies. Neat, huh?!
And the new? Clay is back. On the cover of the latest Surfing mag, nose-picking a West Oz right. Yes, West coast. The cold coast, where everyone else, other than Clay, wears wetties. Apparently Hawaiians are allergic to wetties to just man-up to chilly water temps to avoid the rubbery restrictions. Clay kinda disappeared off the map after being dropped by Quik a coupla years back, but shew, that kid can surf. With wild abandon. Still one of my favourite guys to watch. Just a pity we don't get to see more of him cos he doesn't fit into a brand sterotype. He now lives in Ry Craike's home town on the west coast of Oz for half the year (when Hawaii's flat), and hunts down barely rideable ledges.
