Pro Tip: Don’t Give These Kids Your Inside
“It just depends whether you want to be a c*** or not, and try to get the inside for that first wave.” – Professional junior surf coach Stace Galbraith
Is there anything worse than surfing a crowded point with a bunch of teenaged, aspiring pros?
Likely not. In which case, you’ll probably want to avoid spots like Lower Trestles, Rincon, and the entirety of Australia’s Gold Coast.
As if the hungry munchkins weren’t annoying enough on their own, they now have CT supercoach, Stace Galbraith (AKA Stat Man), whispering secrets in their ears and suggesting that they get on everyone’s inside, or, if that’s not an option, to push them too deep up the point.
But that’s just the reality of competition. If you want to win, you can either be twice as good as the next guy or be a slightly bigger ‘cunt’, to borrow a word from Stace.
It sucks to deal with in the lineup, but we must admit it’s fun to watch in a clip.
