The Pick-Up: Did Kelly Play Mind Games With John, Who Surfs Jaws On A Single-Fin, And Where The Hell Is Italo Ferreira?
Nate Florence stars on the post-Peahi edition of our kaleidoscopic surf show.
This week on Vans x Stab’s yellow room show, we’re joined by the third-place finisher at last week’s Jaws event, Nathan Florence.
The Pick-Up hosts Tiph Cazalis and Ashton Goggans chat with Nate about the impact of Jaws—both on the body and the sport of Big Wave surfing as a whole—and the undeniable mastery of its 4x Champ (and one-time runner-up), Billy Kemper.
Also discussed is Kelly’s all-too-convenient appearance at the Florence residence just before John’s Round 1 heat, which Nate thought was “probably not that innocent [laughs]”; Emi Erickson’s eight-year-old single fin, which she attempted to ride at Jaws last week; Ivan Florence’s Icarus-like ascension and crash; and Italo Ferreira’s disconcerting silence on the Gram.
We also have a shocking Pipe Masters prediction and a lovely east-side hike with Canadian surf starlet Hannah Scott.
