Stab Podcast: Surf Sinner Wages War On Packed Lineup
If Mick wins another Bell his house will be a giant wind chime.
In this week’s pod we ask: how many Bells is too many Bells? Why the mindless sponge hate? Do the new three recently-announced WSL longboard events really constitute a tour? Who else other than ‘white lightning’ was going to get the event WC?
We then briefly cover ep 4 of Drive Thru, Mateus Herdy’s handsome new SEOTY clip dropping soon, before diving into the suitable penance for a COVID-themed surf sin, equal parts evil and genius.
