Coming Soon: Stab’s Guide To Newcastle
Stab and Summer Bright explore a vibrant pocket of Oz surf culture!
It’s a bizarre aspect of the Australian psyche that, despite living on an island that boasts potential for world class waves on most coastal stretches, many surfers will jump a flight OS to chase waves at the first opportunity. This in mind, it was Stab and Summer Bright’s wish to bring the microscope back onto that which is in Australia’s backyard: A rich tapestry of bright surf culture pockets, good times, and incredibly good waves.
If you’re visiting from another country, or if you’re Australian and looking for somewhere different to point your wheels for a weekender, then this series will serve as a collection of suggestions, and guides, for some of the best (but less popular!) surf destinations in the country.
This episode, we’re unfolding the secrets of what makes Newcastle great. We'll kick it with local surf heroes (past and present) like Ryan Callinan, Matt Hoy, Mitch Ross and more, finding out where to coffee, where to surf, where to eat, where to beer, where the town's rich surf heritage originated, and where it's headed.
Keep an eye out for episode two of About Town, coming soon exclusively to Stab.
