Sal Masekela’s Top Five
Y’ever been on the Gold Coast during the Quiksilver Pro? It’s quite a scene. The flash and trash of Coolangatta sprinkled with pros and a ton of surf industry folk makes for a rotten energy that Stab can’t resist.

Y’ever been on the Gold Coast during the Quiksilver Pro? It’s quite a scene. The flash and trash of Coolangatta sprinkled with pros and a ton of surf industry folk makes for a rotten energy that Stab can’t resist. Every year, we find ourselves hosting a party and every year we say it’s the last. This year was no different. Nike, wanting to celebrate their sophisticated view of our sport, desired festivity. Stab facilitated. Nike’s team of experts in the most exciting sport of all came wild for kicks and we totally supplied! They stood poolside and ate freshly-shucked oysters.
So, with that many interesting cats in one place, we figured we’d hang paper from a wall and have them write down their top five most-played, making a cool addition to the party’s aesthetic in the process. This is the second of those, belonging to Sal Masekela. It’s about as eclectic as one could imagine. Stab loves! You might even notice a tune on the list by Sal’s incredible father, Hugh Masekela, who y’should most certainly look up.
