Bobby Martinez Regrets Nothing | First & Last

"Yeah, it was premeditated," Bobby Martinez reveals of the New York incident that expedited his World Tour departure.

"For a couple of years, I was debating on calling it quits. So I was talking to Kelly and Sunny when I went to New York, and before my first heat, I was like, 'If I win this, I'm gonna let them have it.' They were like, 'You're a fool, don't do that shit,' [laughs]. And I was like, 'Nah, fuck that.' You know what I mean? I was just done." 

It's been nearly 10 years since Bobby's famous Tennis Tour speech. Despite his absence from the competitive scene, Bobby's surfing hasn't lost an inch, and he remains one of our sport's most widely cherished figures. 

In this First & Last ep, we visit Bobby at his home, where he shares surfing stories old and new. We also get introduced to his new surfboard model, which has been in the works with Channel Islands for over four years (spoiler: despite having access to CI extensive catalog, he only rides one surfboard—the "Bobby Quad"). 

Tap into one of surfing's most intriguing and revered characters above.
