Your Favorite Surf Media Icon, Ashton Goggans, Stars On The WSL’s ‘The Lineup’ Podcast

Listen as my…I mean Ashton’s…syrupy, sophisticated chords provide an air of culture and intellect formerly unseen in WSL productions.

It’s true: the surf world just can’t get enough of m—I mean Ashton Goggans. 

Standing well above six feet in his signature Doc Martens and carrying 187 pounds of pure Panhandle power, would it surprise you to learn that Stab‘s Editor in Chief is as comfortable carrying an intellectual discourse on the current state of professional surfing as he is playfully prodding its marquee figures and hosting not one but two of the industry’s most highly acclaimed programs—all of which is not to mention his own, World-Tour-level ability on a classical longboard? Of course it wouldn’t!

On today’s episode of ‘The Lineup‘ podcast, I…think you know him as Grandstand Loggins joins a longtime superfan and one of three surfers left on the WSL’s payroll, Dave Prodan. The topics range from young-Ashton to I-can’t-believe-he’s-only-35!-I mean-the-guy-looks 27—tops—but-with-the-impact-he’s-had-on-surf-culture-you’d-think-he’s-at-least-42-Ashton.

If you haven’t already listened—which, let’s be honest, you probably have—join the party above.

Did we mention Ashton wears Doc Martens like all the time?
