What’s In A Word: Bru

“A Bru? It’s a coffee, a beer. It’s also a friend. I think it’s a sentence on its own. You can kinda just be like, ‘Bru!’” John tells the camera. “It’s a beer, a coffee, or a brother,” Wilko echoes shortly after. Do great minds think alike? Is the secret to a championship mindset agreeing on the denotation of South Africa’s most common term of address? Is saying “Bru” and not being from South Africa cultural appropriation? The answer to all these questions: No. But isn’t it funny how the world number one and number two are so quick to agree on something?

On the newest edition of #TourNotes, the tour arrives in J-Bay and fights off jet lag by playing word association. Kelly Slater, Ross Williams, Filipe Toledo’s platinum blonde hair, Rosy Hodge, Michel Bourez and more join in. Also: John John confesses his favourite tour surfer is an Australian, Ace Buchan teaches some surfing (for the kids!), and a rookie journalist attempts to put Julian Wilson in the hot seat.
