Butter Knives: Ozzie Wright
The key to finding life and spirit in onshore slop!
Finding life and spirit in onshore slop isn’t always a breezy task. But the most important element to this puzzle is a far-too-overlooked one: Ride a quirky board! These boards, or Butter Knives as Stab likes to call ’em since they still ride smooth even in slop, are the key to fun when conditions aren’t ideal. And few people own more of them than Ozzie Wright.
Ozzie has reached cult icon status. He’s responsible for inspiring most of your favourite freesurfers (and plenty who dance in the singlet) with his unique take on the world of surf. And, he’s an expert in keeping himself excited by surfing. Mostly, because you’ll never find him riding a 6’0″x 19″ thruster. Here he jams out on a challenging (but fun as hell!) wedge, riding a Vampirate and a Santa Cruz. Dive in!
