As we speak, the surfers, Stab staff, judges, commentary, family, and friends are all boarding fuselages and preparing for takeoff en route to Stab High Japan Presented by Monster Energy.

In fact, our broadcast team even saw our youngest competitor, nine-year-old Zacky Taylor, on their flight yesterday — iPad in hands, feet dangling off the seat.

Lest you forget, the first technicolor wave will gurgle out of the concrete at PerfectSwell Shizunami this weekend (June 22nd/June 23rd in Australia & June 21st/June 22nd in the U.S.) from 10 AM – 3 PM (Sydney) and 5 PM – 10 PM (Los Angeles).

To prepare, we thought we’d roll out the YouTube carpet for our Ladybirds (15U Girls) and our newest squadron, the Bottle Rockets (15U Boys).

Here’s the list of Laybirds and Bottle Rockets, all presented by YETI:
