Now… This: Micky Clarke Deletes Gas Station Hot Dogs In Mex

The lean diet of an aerial assault weapon.

Words by Jack Mutschler

I met Micky Clarke about a day before we left for Costa Rica. I didn’t know much about him, besides the fact that he surfed with brute force and used to be a linebacker during his career on the gridiron. Given these two minor details, I presumed he’d be an aggressive hot head and a pain in the ass as my temporary roommate.

My assumption could not have been further off. Micky turned out to be a genuinely amicable person. A respectful young adult with a sense of humor and a vacant ego. We’ve grabbed a few interviews from Micky over the past two weeks—some silly, others serious.

Scroll down and guess which side this one lands on:

Stab: What’s your spirit animal? Make the noise

Micky: Rhino

Gas station hotdogs, yes or no?
Yes. In Mexico, that was my go-to. I stumbled upon one on the first day of the trip and kept going back every other day.


The worst wave you’re surfed?
Emma wood. It’s my home wave; I surf it way too much. I think it sucks but a lot of people like it.

Favorite pro surfer on the Stab High Costa Rica trip?
Mauro Diaz or Eric Geiselman.

Mauro just seems like the fucking man. He’ll crack a hilarious joke, then just go zen out and look at the stars. Lark is fucking crazy, and he’s such a spirit lifter.

Do you think you could take me in a 40-yard dash?

I don’t know; you look pretty fast. Maybe I’d have a chance if I was still playing football. My knees have been through a lot with surfing. There’s no way I’d win.

Good call Micky, you couldn’t handle this.

How many beers could you put back in one afternoon? (11am – 4pm)
Hahahaha, I could easily hit 20 beers. I know because I’ve done it.

Favorite fast food?
Chick-fil-A. I get a spicy deluxe, large fry, and ice cream with the cone, a soda, and 4-5 Chick-fil-A sauces.

Thanks Micky, now go do a goddamn air.
