Yep, We Invited @Raglansurfreport To Stab Highway Europe, Presented By Monster Energy - Stab Mag

Through The Doggy Door Goes Live Thursday 5pm PT

"I hate when people call me Raglan," Luke told me after I called him Raglan for the 10th time. He would like people to acknowledge he is human not Instagram handle.

Yep, We Invited @Raglansurfreport To Stab Highway Europe, Presented By Monster Energy

And he showed us the true meaning of lavish living.

Luke Cederman and fifteen other surfers were recently in Europe for our third installment of Stab Highway, presented by Monster Energy.

A decade or two older than the rest of the surfers, I was excited to see how the funnyman with a knack for the greenscreen would fair in a contest designed to test mental and physical vigor.

Would Mr. SurfReport lose his peachy surf humor without the luxury of rehearsal?

150 ways to test your sanity.

As someone who chased his team for ten days across Europe, I can validate Luke is his online character— a peach with plenty of prickles to poke fun at the absurdities of our precious surf doctrines.

After a flight 30 + hours too long, Luke arrived at the hostel with several other contestants. Before unpacking, he greeted two granola girls, who were asking what the boys were up to. Luke convinced the girls he was part of a religious a-cappella group touring Europe. He then proceeded to prompt one of the younger boys to perform a song and dance for their hungry audience.

The young Australian stood up and gave a flourishing shake of the hips. The girls blushed. All parties were happy. Cameras hadn’t even started rolling.

Luke minored in lavish living the entire trip, Crocs included.

Luke embraced all the things one might do to prep for Stab Highway — Monster Air practice (‘Ragdoll’ will unlock soon), chats of intent with prospective teammates, sinking piss (NOT WINE), and asserting his status as the one true Kiwi on the trip.

Other ‘fluff’ Kiwis attempted to impose on Luke’s status, but he didn’t let it get him in the head.

Enjoy two minutes of Luke above, and envy the 14 hours we got of him on Stab Highway Europe, presented by Monster. Release date TBD. For now feel free to watch rip clips like the one below.

And on a more serious note, you might want to ask about his European holiday.
