You may have heard we’re running our very first surf event, September 22nd, in a landlocked body of water at the BSR Cable Park, in the heart of Texas.

It’s likely you’ve listened to the voicemails our invitees have been leaving for Johnny on the Stab High hotline – does that guy ever answer his phone?

You should also be aware that we have the likes of Mason Ho, Albee Layer, Chippa Wilson, Matt Meola, Harry Bryant and more inbound from across the world to compete in the first of its kind event.

Well, we asked for your opinion on who should commentate, now, together with SurfStitch, we’re going to let you vote for who you want to see face off with surfing’s most expressive aerialists in the Waco pool. 

Just so there’s no double ups, here’s the names already expected to touch down at Austin Bergstrom International Airport in the coming weeks:

Mason Ho
Albee Layer
Noa Deane
Chippa Wilson
Matt Meola
Harry Bryant
Dion Agius
Ian Crane
Eli Hanneman
Brendon Gibbens
Creed McTaggart
Eithan Osborne
Jay Davies
Jett Schilling


Now hit this link to vote for your SurfStitch Unchained Stab High wildcard. 

(You have until 12:00pm AEST / 7:00pm PST Friday the 14th of September.)


There’s also a limited number of tickets for the event, so head this way to jump on them – let’s face it, nothing could be better than seeing it all go down, drink in hand, from the pool’s surrounding grassy amphitheatre.

Thanks to SurfStitch, Monster Energy and BSR Cable Park for making this happen.
