Here at Ain’t that Swell we’re committed to bringing you your weekly dredge of all things surfing. This week Al Knost joins us live from Costa Mesa to explain how his hometown became one of the world’s strongest indie surf culture hubs, also how it feels to be the face of said movement and we also give him the chance to respond to …Lost owners’ Matt Biolos and Mike Reola’s claim that he’s a “pillow biting prima donna” whose “all name and no game.”
With the Billabong Pro, Rio wrapping up today we get the poison quill himself, Lewis Samuels on the line to talk us through the event. Also, why neither event winner John John Florence nor 11-time world champion Kelly Slater will overtake Dane Reynolds as the world’s greatest surfer. And finally, we don our 6mm dry suits, load our shotgun and head into the Canadian wilderness with Canuck pro, Peter Devries for this week’s Obscure Surf Check.
