"Artistic People Smoke Pot, Insecure People Drink And Do Cocaine"
The Drop returns with 2x World Champion and one of surfing's most polarizing opinionated Elder Statesmen, Joel Tudor!
Welcome back to The Drop, Stab's semi-irregular audible offering.
For this one-off episode, Stab's Editor in Chief, Ashton Goggans sits down with one of the most opinionated and influential surfers of the last twenty-five years, Joel Tudor.
After running through a class at Studio 540, the jiu-jitsu studio Joel is heavily invested in, Joel sat down at his North County San Diego residence of over two decades and discuss many a matter near and dear to his heart: jiu-jitsu, Pipeline, and his early days on the North Shore; the small army of icons and legends of the sport who took him under wing at a young age; cannabis, cocaine, creativity and the "jock mentality"; skateboarding, longboarding, the secrets to longevity, and much, much more.
While we won't write checks our ass can't cash, there's a good chance you'll be hearing more from The Drop very soon.
