How Winning The Highest Air At Stab High Put Eithan Osborne’s Name In Our Mouths
Is epoxy the vessel to space on the Waco ramp? Eithan’s $20k check says so, but will the rest of the surfers follow suit.
Last year, Eithan Osborne won $20,000 for completing the biggest air at Stab High.
It was a frontside straighty, moderately boned, fumbled slightly in the wash but ultimately given the completion. By our calculations, this air was 14.3 inches higher than any other landed that day, which is a testament both to Eithan’s skill and his epoxy Neck Beard 2, which provided that 20k pop.
Following Eithan’s loftiness, it’ll be interesting to see how many surfers adopt the epoxy strategy at Stab High 2.0. But regardless of craft, who in our 2019 field will be able to match the kosher kremlin in terms of aerial height? With another 20 gees up for grabs, it’s in everybody’s best interest to try.
Watch Eithan’s Road to Waco above, where he discusses everything Stab High in very serious eyewear.
