Leaked: “The World’s Best Two-Foot Connoisseur”
Jake Vincent is inspiring a new generation of anti-cutback trick fanatics.
Turns are fucking boring! Honest!
Blokes have been doing them since the dawn of time (read: like, the 70’s) and the waves are typically so shit (ignore Cyclone Oma) there’s no co-operative sections anyway.
Growing up on the elongated, pointy walls of Noosa, a young and impressionable Jakey Vincent was subject to incessant abuse at the tongue’s of his longboarding and core peers. But a young Vin replied, “Fuck that! I’ve seen Passion Pop [1500 times] and just wanna do fuckin’ shuvs.’
Today, at the peak of small-wave surfing’s rise to fame, Jake Vincent sits pretty atop the pedestal. Other two-foot and under fanatics like Chippa Wilson, Wade Goodall, and Filipe Toledo (Vin’s biggest fan) may have inspired the young whipper-snapper, but today they’re left trailing in his erratic wake.
The above is a leaked segment from Zion Wetsuits full feature on the tale of Jake Vincent and his passion for slop. Some say it’ll be out in the next few months, others say never at all, but the last we heard, is that “it’ll be out when it’s bloody ready.”
Stay tuned for the feature length and the inexorable small-wave World Tour set to take over the globe once the Olympics bathe surfing in their ankle-biting glory.
God bless shitty waves.
