Jack Robbo pulls off the massive air in Portugal. Pretty ordinary apart from that.

Worth watching the start of this vid for good drone footage of Slater’s Kirra tube ride which has been on high distribution this week. It plays the tube twice which I guess saves you from rewinding it.

So Steph has jumped ship to Rip Curl on a ten year deal. Interesting move at her age. Maybe looking for a lifestyle rather than competitive surfer. Expect to see her on lots of trips I expect. They are owned by Kathmandu.

Didn’t she surf under rip curl the first half of her career?

I reckon the best looking major sponsor sticker on a board is billabong.

Maybe unconscious bias from growing up watching jack McCoy films with Occ.

I liked Quiksilver. I was a TC fan. And Quiksilver was big in Torquay in the 80’s with the Kong and Chappy stuff. I had a pair of their polka dot boardies which I wore to death.

I think a lot of my favourite surfers were bong - occ, Parko, Andy, Margo, Louie, Rasta
Seemed all the guys with the best style, for me anyway. Bar curren.
And all the no name sponsored surfers you'd come across in the lineups, the worst behaved always seemed to be rip curl.
