Aggregating old content is great. Not just because it’s easy—you just have to compile a bunch of content you already have—but because the end product is so thoroughly enjoyable. Honestly, who wouldn’t want to watch the best competitive waves from surfers like Gabriel Medina, John Florence, and now Stephanie Gilmore.

Over the past few weeks the World Surf League has been releasing a flurry of ‘best of’ clips and now the seven time World Champion, and finest female surfer to place two feet atop a board, Stephanie Gilmore, has been given the aggregation treatment. 

Starting the tour full-time in 2007, Steph has since accumulated seven world titles—matching Layne Beachley’s record, we all know the ‘eighth’ one doesn’t count, Layne—and is widely regarded as the most stylish surfer alive. In these 13 years on the tour Steph has dominated just about every event location, in particular Snapper Rocks, Honolua Bay, and Bells. In saying that, her rare combination of effortless style and power have her capable of taking the podium at just about any location you dish up. Her surfing at Keramas last year is just one example.  

We highly recommend you whip out a viewing device other than your phone, watch the next 10-minutes of Steph decimating the World Tour, and then crack a beer to watch Steph’s Electric Acid test to add a bit of eccentricity to yr Sunday.
