Another Fine Export From An Historic Australian Winter
Cooper Chapman is grateful.
Australians have a lot to be grateful for.
The non-stop waves in their recently-departed winter are one thing. The government's relative leniency in terms of covid restrictions is another. Ethan Ewing and Jack Robinson existing is a noteworthy third.
And Cooper Chapman? He's built his life around the concept of gratitude. The guy is so damn positive, that even when he blows out his knee he sees it as an "opportunity" rather than a hindrance.
Above, Cooper compiled a few of his finest moments from the east coast's historic swell season. The surfing's enjoyable from start to finish, but we couldn't look past the step-off tub at 2:30 or the mid-face gaff at 2:45.
For those, we too are grateful.
