This Is Us: Australia Part 2

We dealt with a ton of rain during filming for this series. It hampered surfs, made us chase our tail, wiped skating off the list for many days and poured chocolate milk colored water into the lineups. But it didn’t come without fun too. Locked indoors for the evening, we’d sip on red and play cards, shit talk, read poetry books and watched skate videos. We actually learned some shit. The waves we’d find every morning were always different. Weird shorebreak with no other people even thinking of going out. Then we’d paddle out because funny wipeouts were inevitable and there was always the odd chance that someone might find a Danny Way sized mega-ramp. We surfed a ton right through all the rain. And that’s just how it was. No one complained. This is episode two. Enjoy.

Surf culture isn’t polished. It’s not cut out for primetime. And anyone who’s ever chucked surfboards into the back of a van knows what type of conversations go down on surf trips. We have all the …lost videos and watch them to this day. And while we hope you enjoyed This Is Us: Australia and…
