The Growing Relevance Of Ian Crane!
More than a San Clemente comp guy in Kolohe’s shadow.
A brief synopsis of what's behind the play button right here: horse neck as a dining delicacy, surfing with the lower intestine of a whale at your favourite wave and how to build a career while evading the wake of your big-named, big-monied pal. Ian Crane's one of the Golden State's most underrated surfers and a guy we like spending time with. Unlike most pro surfers, he asks questions about your life, critiques his own life choices and even buys the coffee. Post surf he's more tall boy Modelo lager than Kombucha cold press. We dig how he packs closeouts deep in Baja, chases girls in LA and executes cutbacks through the San Clemente pier (2:24). "Shooting the pier's literally my favourite thing to do," he told us, before smashing his rail against the pylon. When we showed Mr Crane this finished clip he said, "take out the part where I'm talking about LA, I sound like a dick." But we liked the colour and personality so it stayed.
