Unveiling The Mystery Behind The Freshest And Youngest CT Rider

Ethan Ewing’s backstory revealed in Board Tales.

Cue the Andy Irons references. Something young Ethan’s grown used to by now but remains appreciative when acknowledging the honour. Ethan’s been on our radar for some time; we put him on a cover, “Stop Dropping Pins”, last year before he came runner-up in the 2016 US Open–which started his stroll towards qualification. In this episode of Board Tales, Billabong plugs the microphone to the Straddie kid, which he’ll have to grow accustomed to now that he’s a part of the show. To answer the question posed in the title, yes. The kid’s delightful. We know he has the skill set to be an axe in small-to-mid sized conditions, but how he’ll competitively fare against the world’s best in waves of consequence is yet to be determined–if it’s any indication, he finished in the quarters of all three QS events associated with the Triple Crown.
