Dane Gifts Us All On Micky Clarke’s 22nd Birthday
A new episode of Ch.11 TV celebrating one of Ventura’s finest.
If you don’t know Micky Clarke at this point, your acquaintance is long overdue.
A long-time Stab favorite, the young Venturan’s grown his profile in recent years by releasing sensational edits with Hunter Martinez like ‘Fricked’ I and II and Blud Brothers. He also rounds out the immensely-talented surf squad of Dane, Eithan, and Matt McCabe. Micky’s surfing (particularly his forehand) looks like Mike Tyson pre-KO punch, coiled up and excessively powerful, meaning he generally incinerates any section that crosses his path.
We never know when Dane is gonna drop a Ch.11 episode in our laps, so each one should be cherished like a Christmas ham. Episode 6 celebrates Micky’s 22nd lap around the sun and includes an accompanying interview (executed by Dane), an excerpt of which you can read below (read the whole thing Ch11).
And may we say Happy Birthday to a man who has one of the nicest looking Air Rev’s in the business. Here’s to 22 more!
