Stab Podcast: Is Huntington Beach A More Exciting Contest Venue Than Ericeira?

Surf sins, a rundown of this week’s surf cinema, and an unpopular opinion from the CUSP fellas.

Those CUSP guys sure do know a lot about competitive surfing. 

Their analysis of the Ericeira CS event is delivered with praise to Buck for predicting a win from Zeke Lau, plus an unpopular opinion that may be hard to swallow. 

The claim: the Huntington Beach stomp was more entertaining than the cutback parade in Ericeira.

A bold claim indeed, but Mikey and Stace provide the reasoning for such harmful words.

News

Can you feel it? It’s almost here.

We’re referring to the 2021 Vans Digital Triple Crown of surfing, of course. Buck and Danny share their appreciation for the newly formatted event, explaining that it allows for the best surfing to be done in the best conditions. Buck predicts JJF and Carissa Moore as the winners for the next 20 years, so place your bets accordingly.

Films were also a big hit this week, as a full-length Salty Crew clip debuted on the site, as well as Kolohe Andino’s highly praised ‘Reckless Isolation.’ And did we mention our new series ‘Stab Highway presented by Monster Energy’ yet? Episode 2 is now playing exclusively on Stab Premium.
