Here at Ain’t that Swell we’re committed to bringing you your weekly dredge of all things surfing. This week Ozzie Wright joins us in the studio (well, his studio) to play us a few records and talk us through his life and times (think choc-coated-magic-mushroom-cubes, the North Narrabeen “bucks party” style of surf culture and the bizarre accumulation of successful tweakers and bohemians that are his friends and family).

With the Billabong Pro, Rio De Janeiro around the corner, World Tour surfer Matt Wilkinson talks to us about preparing for an event in one of the world’s most crowded and aggressive lineups (spoiler: it involves him getting slapped followed by a threesome). Also, why a bigger penis doesn’t necessarily improve your surfing.

Finally, we head to Ireland’s west coast for this week’s Obscure Surf Check with Fergal Smith. The winter was brutal but Fergal had the mental grit to see it out. How he fares as the country’s kooks continue to discover tow surfing, however, is another matter.
