Will Noa Deane Defend His Stab High Title?

He’s a high jumpin’ cat with calves like elephant trunks. 

Words by stab

You bet your sweet ass we’re going back to Waco, Texas for round two of Stab High. 

Our event will take place on June 29th at our favorite hillbilly theme park, the Barefoot Ski Resort (get tickets here)

Noa Deane won last year with two highly technical varials – one frontside, one back. 

Recently coming off a severe ankle injury, Noa will attempt to defend his title against a deeper and even more talented field than in 2018. 

Noa wishes he was smaller so he could do bigger airs in the pool. While we couldn’t locate a shrink-ray to satisfy Noa’s needs, we did discover a new setting on the pool that launches surfers twice as high as before. It’s called the Freak Peak and you can find it buried in our June 29 program.

We hope to see you there!
