Watch: Stab In The Dark All-Stars, ft. Dane Reynolds, Mick Fanning, and Jordy Smith

Will they agree on which board is best?

Words by stab

The best surfers in the world trying to determine the best shaper in the world? Yup, this is our favourite project of the year and since last week, if the world were spinning on its normal axis, our eyes would have been glued to Jeffrey’s Bay, this is the closest we’ll get for now. 

This time last year, we were getting the last pieces in place to assemble Mick Fanning, Jordy Smith, and Dane Reynolds in South Africa for Stab In The Dark All-Stars, with the plan being to slowly whittle their respective quivers down to three favorites, for a grand finale at Jeffreys. 

If you’ve seen the film, you know things don’t always go as planned. 

While the film has been available for purchase for a while, this period of A-List surf film scarcity seemed like the right time to drop it for free for a bit. We could all use a little Indian Ocean energy and some digital distraction. 

Click in to watch Stab In The Dark All-Stars Edition, starring Mick Fanning, Jordy Smith, and Dane Reynolds free for the first time, now. 

Also, a big thanks to all of our supporters who bought the film. We sincerely appreciate you helping us make more long-form surf films.
