Stab Podcast: Will Peninsula Boy Kelly Slater Spin His Way To Glory At Haleiwa?

Let’s hope nobody leaves a menacing note on his car.

Today is Friday, or Saturday, or perhaps neither of those days if you’ve clicked into this post a great many hours after it was published.

But I’m going to roll with Friday, because Friday is the day we publish Stab podcasts.

As always, this week’s episode gets you up to date on the latest surf news (but not in a boring way because fuck that). The CUSP crew jumps on and tells you everything you need to know about Haleiwa, including how Kelly Slater can win (spoiler: do nothing but carving 360s). It is all very fun and will radically improve the quality of your life.

One quick note: The 20% off sale on Stab Premium gift memberships will happen on Cyber Monday now, instead of running through the weekend. So, get ready for that. Greatness is achieved only through preparation.

And now, here are some time codes:

Everything And All: The Peter Mel Story premiere/why you’re Jurassic Park spine makes it so that you’ll never surf that good: 2:10 
Who’s going to make the CT this year/chaos and confusion as Danny and I try to make sense out of the quickly aging “Island Boys” internet phenomenon: 8:25 
The best shit waves we’ve seen with Dane Reynolds and co/why the Uber-rich don’t consume dairy: 13:34 
Owen Wright is giving someone a 4-day Byron lesson and surf lesson for $40/Owen Wright shouldn’t be allowed to teach people how to surf: 18:09 
Stab Highway/Harry Bryant issues public apology: 21:47 
GOAT related surf sin: 26:42  

And the CUSP covers 

Event forecast: 39:42 
Qualification cutline: 41:50 
Men’s predictions: 44:50 
How Kelly can win: 49:28
Women’s predictions: 53:48 
Wipeout of the event: 101:28 

Bless you all.
