Kael Walsh Won’t Let Eithan Osborne Abandon The Stab High Afterparty
What friends are for.
Last year at Stab High, Kael Walsh launched a gravity-averse alleyoop, landing cleanly in the transition for a high single score.
He wasn’t able to collect a supplementary number on the left, however, leading to Kael’s marked absence from the six-man final. But the West Aussie has been training his backhand in the Stab High off-season—evidenced by clip #1 in the edit above—as he has been tuning his pal and fellow Stab High competitor, Eithan Osborne, not about the event itself, but instead about the afterparty, which according to many 2018 attendees was the highlight of the weekend.
Whether Kael will be able to convince Eithan to stay for the post-comp soiree, rather than jetting off to Africa for a QS 10,000 (which starts the day after Stab High) remains to be seen, but something tells us that if either of them win, or even come close, it will be hard to deny a night of raucous celebration.
