Two Brazilians And A Puka Shelled White Boy Fight For The World Title

The Ain’t That Swell lads debate 2018 World Champs, floating bricks of toot, kayak sales, and even get a tad political.

We might be a little late on this front, as the chief Swellians debated this topic amidst the Portugal Pro. But thankfully, the three pre-Portugal contenders are still in the World Title equation leading into Pipe.

Now, you could always take a serious point of view and consider the maths, history, and conditions when filling your betting slops. Or, you could plug into Jed Smith, Vaughan Blakey and whoever else they’ve decided to invite onto the show for the week instead – which happens to be WSL insider, Ronnie Blakey, and Danny ‘contribute nothing of value’ Johnson. 

The hottest topic is of course the gut-wrenching fight between two brazilians and a white boy, otherwise known as, F-Tole, G-Med and #CarnJoycey, or if you want to get real serious, Gabriel Medina, Filipe Toledo, and Julian Wilson. 

In the XY division, Jules Australia’s last shred of dignity, but when it comes to the double X’s, we’re still clear favourites – unless Steph G goes to shit in her first few rounds in Maui. 

Aside from World Title chit-chat the Swellians also discuss floating bricks of cocaine, the subsequent rise in kayak sales, aerial comps, and even get a little bit political as surfing’s number one Marxist, Jed Smith, directs the viewers towards a politician who might actually be worth listening to.

Oh, and there’s a sneak listen at the Goons of Doom new single. No wonder the fucker is two hours long!

Tell your housemates to cram it and listen to this for the next two hours.
