You Voted: Here Are The Top 10 Stab Films of 2021
And the winner is…
Stab released thousands of hours of films this year, and many of you watched every minute. So we asked our Stab Premium members — which did you like the best? They voted, we tallied, and below you’ll find the results. We even added some “official reviews” from the comment section. Any surprises for ya?
Richard de Ruijter: This was awesome. I wonder how EAST can be topped next year. Thank you Stab, Coco & Mason and all the shapers involved for a great series!
Brandle Dougans: This was epic. I didn’t blink, and I don’t even like airs.
RFS: Absolute GOLD!! Bravo Stab
Jul K: Matt is just on another level. So gnarly what he pulls off. He is comfortable where the others chicken out.
Kama’aina: I have to say that I’m sorry that I was so negative going into this. Knowing that these boards were not shaped with Taj’s dims or needed volume had me so bummed on the prospect of what this process would be like and what kind of insight I could glean from it. But these first two episodes have been freaking awesome to watch. I don’t care about any of what I thought I did prior. I just want to see and hear more from Taj. What he is feeling and expressing about the boards so far has me thinking about my quiver and my current dimensions in a new way. Super stoked and dreaming up my summer quiver now. The pay wall is more than worth it. Keep up the good work. Mahalo!!!
drewcantreid: Fuck, that was so good. Grinning like a teenage boy who’d wandered to the naughty section of the news-agency the whole way through. Bring on the next ep
Jason: that was all time. huge kudos to Pete for the honesty & inspiration, and to the team for putting together such an epic 30min cut. Could watch it again tomorrow.
George Camp: THE way forward!!! Such a good format and commentary! Keep it up boys ( and girls)
A Dude: Came here to say you seem… happier? Have no idea why that thought crossed my mind, but it did. So, I’m sharing it. Also, was really impressed with the carving 360 and the lil alley oop. Keep up the good content, and surfing.
Fuggen_waffle: Huge fan of Dane and his surfing and can totally relate to being disinterested in alternative craft, long may he reign!
