Y’ever been on the Gold Coast during the Quiksilver Pro? It’s quite a scene. The flash and trash of Coolangatta sprinkled with pros and a ton of surf industry folk makes for a rotten energy that Stab can’t resist. Every year, we find ourselves hosting a party and every year we say it’s the last. This year was no different. Nike, wanting to celebrate their sophisticated view of our sport, desired festivity. Stab facilitated. Nike’s team of experts in the most exciting sport of all came wild for kicks and we totally supplied! They stood poolside and ate freshly-shucked oysters.
So, with that many of our most-loved surfers in one place, we figured we’d hang paper from a wall and have them write down their top five most-played, making a cool addition to the party’s aesthetic in the process. This is the first of those, belonging to Kolohe Andino. The best music is timeless. Always has been and always will, which is something Kolohe Andino’s discovered. Not one of the songs in the kid’s top five was written after his birth.
