In this episode of Fairly Normal, we spend some time with our friend Chippa Wilson at his home in Cabarita Beach. You’ll see us eat some nachos and get to the bottom of why skaters think we’re pussies, then spontaneously hop a plane to a lonely desert and come to grips with the epic reality that Chippa is somehow (and all at once) humble, badass and truly deserving of being labeled one of the best surfers in the world. Hit play, use our bandwidth and see what we mean.

Fairly Normal: Leo Romero Episode 021 presented by Emerica
Leo Romero was Thrasher Magazine’s Skater of the Year in 2010. And he’s been one of our favorite skaters since Emerica’s 2003 vid This is Skateboarding. His view of the skate world is one of the more interesting one’s we’ve come across and it isn’t easy to pin him down. But we managed to spend a lot…
Fairly Normal: Danny Fuller Episode 020 Presented by Raen: Kauai to LA to NY to Pipeline
Danny Fuller is a lot of things. He’s an it guy at Pipeline, a world renowned artist and photographer. He can run with the Wolfpak and hob knob with New York’s fashion elite on the same day. He’s paid his dues at the world’s heaviest lineup and is a North Shore staple. He’s also created…
Fairly Normal: Nate Tyler Episode 019
He’s mellow but somehow punk. Humble and radical. Friendly and legit. His story has been painted a myriad of ways but never quite how we saw it. So we went to him. And made him show us more than usual. Waves, people, family and backroads of his Central California. What we found was even better…

Fairly Normal: Creed McTaggart Episode 014
He’s the gypsy. The wild man. The vagabond. The dude who smokes. Nti Sheeto. This is Us. Yeah Dude. Incredible talent. Free spirit. Kind-hearted. Lizard. Fun. Hessian. Human. Yes, he is many of these things and much more
Fairly Normal: Christian Fletcher Episode 013
An honest, authentic, death-defying Fairly Normal on Christian Fletcher and the infinite and un-ending influence he’s had on us all.
Fairly Normal: Dolan Stearns Episode 012
It’s rad to meet someone like this. It’s nice to know they still exist, beneath the surface of the mainstream, drawing, skating, creating and fucking shredding.
Fairly Normal: Ryan Callinan Episode 011
Hit play, devour some of our bandwidth and meet the modest man who’s making Merewether Beach so proud — and start to understand why we’re so certain he’ll be grabbing a lot more of that spotlight he’s earned very soon.
Fairly Normal: Luke Davis Episode 010
It may not translate to results on the WQS, but there aren’t many people we’d rather watch high-line and arc. He’s the kind of surfer who could never do another air and we’d still enjoy every nuance of his style.
