I respectfully disagree, but with you, the commentators the pdga normally uses are illinformed at best, completely incompetent at worst, perhaps because im from cali and know a ton of folks that sound just like them that are in no way hippies, burnouts or douchey surfers (side note the only douchey surfers i do know are transplants from the midwest who think that is how people are supposed to act...douches.) I would rather listen CCDG any day.

Some info they give is informative (disc selection, etc) but stop saying "man", "dude", and "hyzer bomb".
Imma' go ahead and give your post one of these too:

like it really matters?! disc golf commentary is not a profession to begin with. Be thankful someone is out there in that area doing things to support DG. there is a mute button for all videos. If you can't relate to someone just because they don't speak exactly like you but clearly have a passion which is similar then just get over yourself already and move on DUDE(s).

CCDG are extremely professional, courteous and supportive of the DG community, all over the Coastal California DG scene, North and South. They represent the good things about Disc Golf, much more than the bad. So we should give thanks to them, and turn off the sound if your personal preference is not to listen to Californians that love Disc Golf.

I've watched all manner of videos from those with commentary, to those with music, to those with dead air. The ones I enjoy the most are the ones where CCDG is providing the commentary. Every announcer on the planet can be annoying to some degree and the CCGG guys are no exception, but by and large they provide enough good info offset their foibles and end up making the video more fun to watch.

I agree with most wrong coasters here. The CCDG guys are Def. Cali. there is no doubt there but they do seem to be genuinely having fun with the videos and they are doing a decent job trying to keep it light and entertaining and I can't say they are completely failing there. They are also doing voice over so it is much easier for them to offer insight as they are doing it after seeing the footage.

as for Crazy John/Greenie and the DG planet commentary. It is just garbage all the way around. they really need to do WAY more prep work for the broadcast and for god sake get their facts straight before speaking. I love the DG Planet concept and I need for it to be successful because I love the live aspect of the competition. but damn they make it hard to listen.

My favorites are usually the no commentary/no music videos, but it's nice to get the occasional disc info from the CCDG guys.

I'd love it if Feldburg started doing commentary.

LOL at your ignorance. I grew up on the central coast (Santa Maria), and the CCDG guys sound nothing like "stupid, burnout hippies" to me, they sound like me and my drug-free, non-surfing, polo-shirt wearing friends and relatives. Keep up the good work, CCDG.

I'd like to see this:

transformed into filming tournament rounds. Imagine seeing the disc flights from above.
