Stab Podcast: ‘Power Airs’, Sad Pads, & Kelly Attends The Academy Slap Awards
Featuring special guests, Matt Biolos and Jed Smiv.
Albee Layer now works at Trader Joes.
Not really, but after watching Kael Walsh’s ‘idiot box’ he came damn close to throwing his hard drives away and seeking a career path outside surfing. This week, the world’s best visually-impaired surf podcast discusses Kelly and his Oscar’s appearance, the changing demographic of surfers given increases in coastal property value (ft Smiv), gruesome applications of traction pads, and the penances of a frankly nasty double burning surf sin.
Lastly, this years #2 place in SITD, Matt Biolos from Mayhem/Lost takes us inside the foam and resin bay of elite shaping, the sting of coming second, his shared affinity for vintage second-hand airplanes with Marcio Zuvio of Sharpeye, ‘instagram shapers’, and his new book ‘The Last Crusade’.
