Masterful Frictionless Tutelage With Surf Cowboy Ari ‘Krooky’ Browne
Spin like a genu wine cowpolk, yeehaa.
If you haven’t seen S.U.R.F. yet, you should.
Featuring four of Byron Bay’s most colorful characters: Ozzy Wright, Jake Vincent, Soli Bailey, and Ari Browne, S.U.R.F was a surf TV show where four contestants competed in four challenges that relate to the everyday surfer’s experience for the chance of winning $10K and a shitload of glory.
The Krookster aka Ari Browne, finished last in S.U.R.F., but not without first winning over the hearts and minds of viewers with his silk-spinning water-wizardry and endearing mystical charm. Ari might not be the most well known surfer of his generation, but he may well be the best frictionless surfer.
Mollusk Surf Shop, a surfing institution based in San Francisco, Silver Lake and Venice Beach have released a three-part surf tutorial with Ari on how to ride frictionless boards.
Concepts covered include: rail grabs, stances, and combinations.
Settle into your stirrups and get ready to rodeo.
