So, How Can I Watch Episode Three Of Vans Stab High presented by Monster Energy?
A brief explanation.
Episode 2 of Vans Stab High, Non-Chlorine presented by Monster Energy definitely had some more kick to it (looking at you, Matt Meola).
If Instagram ain’t your bag, the highlight was Nathan Fletcher stomping a monumental straight air whilst exiting a barrel. While the rest of the boys were busy prepping a court case for the necessity of air wind, Nathan was busy ignoring physics roughly 50 feet over the lip. Leave it to the 46-year-old judge to set the tone for an air contest.
Sebastian Williams showed us that asymmetrical surfboards still like to fly, despite their aerodynamic misconceptions. Once again, the Ladybirds soared above the lip, breaking down our now minuscule surf egos, one flawless air reverse at a time.
Watching episode 3 is going to be a little different.
Bad news: you’re gonna have to pay.
Good news: it’s only $6 (not just for this episode, but a whole month of Stab Premium content).
If you missed yesterday’s announcement, Stab has migrated toward a subscription service, offering all of its premium content for a small monthly fee. Just think of it as one less trip to Starbucks each month, or a mere $0.20 a day.
I know, I know…everything should be free and other media outlets don’t charge for their content. Plus social media is littered with free surf clips. The truth is, other outlets aren’t Stab. Obviously, my opinion comes with a dash of bias, but there are few surf productions pushing consistent and authentic content like Vans Stab High, Stab in the Dark, and the Electric Acid Surfboard Test. Believe it or not, producing such media fills up the margins on the monthly expense report quickly, and offers little if any ROI. We make this content because we love surfing—nothing more and nothing less. But we still need to keep the lights on.
If I haven’t reeled you in yet, how’s this: the first 5,000 Stab Premium subscribers get the first month on the house (courtesy of Vans). You can cancel anytime—we’ll even email you multiple reminders before we charge for the second month—but chances are you won’t want to.
Tune in Wednesday at 7 PM PST for the third episode of the best content aerial surfing has to offer.
