Youtube a tué les spots secret de surf

Cet article de Kimball Taylor revient sur le problème de vouloir garder un spot secret à l’époque d’Internet et des réseaux sociaux.

The surfers who establish a spot make an agreement, an unspoken contract, that decides whether a particular break is granted a “secret,” or reserved, status. Either that agreement holds or it doesn’t, but the process is well established. In fact, the very idea of a “secret spot” has held such an ennobled, even mythical, position within the surf culture worldwide that it’s as iconic now as the idea of “the perfect wave” was 50 years ago.

J’y vois une question essentielle:

Diffuser la vidéo de son spot dit « secret », est-ce pour le partage ou pour la gloire?
