Thom Pringle is, in one sense, a professional surfer. Professional in that companies pay him to sport their wares and allow them to use his image. But he ain’t professional in the sense that all-day, everyday, Thom pours concrete slabs. Watching the kid on the work site, you’d never know Thom was a fruity aerialist punk (except for maybe a hint of colour-pattern on his socks, or a slightly larger neck-scoop on the teo).
But one thing Thom’s colleagues unquestioningly dig about him, is his musical palate. At a special time of the day, Nova FM gets a reprieve and Thom reinvigorates the troops with his playlist. So, let him oblige you. Be invigorated!
