When WSL Commish Kieren Perrow And Occy Talk, We Listen
Occ-cast! Party time! Excellent!
What does Mark Occhilupo do when he rejoins the WSL cast in Tahiti? He sits everyone he can down at a table with a view, drinks a beer and has a chat. First being King Kelly Slater, then Jack Freestone, and now the most powerful man in surfing, WSL Commish, Sir Kieren Perrow. Yup, he squeezed the tours udders in Polynesia. We wonder who else will show up at this table, and how many beers Occ took down in the process. The raging bull and KP were long-time competitors, back when the WSL was the ASP, and they have a bit of history.
Here the two gentlemen talk big wave surfing, making critical mistakes in heats (like the time Occy gave Kieren a wave at Chopes during a heat, and KP swung on it and got a ten), Kelly’s place on tour and how the younger gen competes against him. The interview’s candid, knowledgeable and engaging. Let’s get the Occ back behind the commentators’ booth.
