John Florence At Chopes Narrated By Barton Lynch > Your Morning Podcast

Barton should commentate anything, everything!

There’s no voice on the WSL commentary team that makes me gleam like Barton’s. I just came across this Sports Science meets the WSL meets Hurley Surf Club meets John Florence at Chopes and have been lifted.

“John only takes a few strokes to get into this wave,” he says with a slight chuckle, “they’re ferocious; they’re determined. The only way to surf a wave like this is to get to your feet with lightning reflexes!”

He’s the David Attenborough of surf. His voice could dress any subject in suede or Italian leather. He has the knowledge and enthusiasm for surfing that’s only rivalled by Steve Irwin on crocs, or Jeremy Wade on extreme freshwater angling.

And now, a few suggestions for Barton’s voice, including but not limited to, that’d bring many smiles:

Barton on the North Korea situation.

Barton on Laird’s new haircut: “The Laird”.

Barton commentates the Floyd Merriweather vs Conner McGregor fight.

Barton in the voice generator of Steven Hawking.

Barton reveals the birds and the bees to elementary students.

Barton watches Ancient Aliens.

Barton narrates erotic Afrofuturism fiction.

Oh, the possibilities!
