Are CT Surfers Largely Anti-Vaxxers?

Here's a little something I learned last week...

Championship Tour surfers are largely anti-vaxxers.

And no, I'm not just talking about people who have a reasonable suspicion of a rushed vaccine to a largely misunderstood pandemic. I'm talking about people who are so skeptical of a Yellow Fever shot that they'd purposefully (and illegally, presuming they didn't declare it in customs) add a London layover (+16 hours of travel time) to their Brazil ----> South Africa itinerary just to avoid a jab in the arm.

This is one of several reasons that CT coach and Stab CUSP principal Stace Galbraith doesn't believe the WSL will get its Tour system off the ground anytime soon, despite their ambitious plans to kick off the Triple Crown and 2020/2021 CT season this coming November. 

During our recent chat, I also learned there's still plenty of "fraternizing" between members of the male and female Tours these days, so it's not as if surfing's elite are expressly opposed to intrusions by a foreign object, so to speak. 

More in the latest CUSP ep below!

And when you get sick of us, tap into The Lineup, where the WSL's own Dave Prodan and Pat O'Connell discuss the inner workings of the WSL's new plan and play a very silly game.
