Owen’s Comeback, Overcoming Shark Phobia And The Weirdest Stat In Surfing

Two commentary vets, Joe Turpel and Mr Mark Occhilupo, together on a Gold Coast balcony. Filmed right after Owen Wright made his monumental CT comeback, Occ plucked Joe from the booth and fired a bunch of honest questions his directions for the latest Occ-Cast episode. While it's a long one, Joe's delivery is a refreshing break from the stumbling and overly-guarded answers you sometimes get with professional surfer interviews. So, what direction does the pair take in their verbal wanderings? The perks of the commentary game; from collecting stamps in his passport pages to squeezing his own moments in the water, the future of surf (which may or may not involve more switch-stancing), fighting fear in and around shark city and Ethan Ewing's exciting approach to waveriding. Facts you didn't know about the most recognisable voice on the WSL payroll above, enjoy.
