Watch: Jack Robinson's Five-Minute Ode To Barrels And Airs
West Oz is a wonderland of aggressive and progressive wave-sliding. It's also Jack's home.
Jack Robinson finished 39th on the QS this year – a rating which, in relation to his surfing above, is a direct affront to surfing's legitimacy as a "sport".
In quality waves, and especially in tubes, Jack is a top-10 CTer every day of the week. His ability to read the ocean and react to its constant motion, paired with his natural balance and agility, makes Jack an undeniable force. Just look at what he did at North Point this year, before the West Oz event was sent to Bali by a couple hungry sharks.
And speaking of West Oz, how good is that little wave magnet Jack calls home? From the Box to North Point, down to Rabbit's, Supers, and Cobbles, Jack has the zone dialed and is consistently getting the best barrels around. Not to mention his air game has rapidly progressed since we last saw him, proven by the abundance of six-foot oops in his latest flick.
So if you're a fan of barrels, airs, really good waves and non-conforming surf tunes, this is the clip for you. It might be one of the best sections all year.
