Ok, so here’s our next Top 5…Surfers!
We’ve spent ‘hours and hours’ debating who should and shouldn’t be in there, and yet it appears that we might have made a pretty big omission… Oops!
(web links where available/found)
Rob Machado - I could watch him all day long.
Shane Dorian - All rounder and a half!
Dane Reynolds - New schools, old school!
Craig Anderson - Letting loose stylishly!
Mark Harris - A genuine inspiration when I was a grom; has the best looking carve on earth!
Joel ‘Parko’ Parkinson - Nobody ever as stylish on right-hand point breaks…ever!
Mark ‘Occy’ Occhilupo – Legend!
John John Florence – A freak of nature in 1 foot to 20 foot waves.
Tom Curren – A master of style without even trying.
Neil Harris - My old man, an inspiring big grommet!
The Director’s Choices
Pete ‘PJ’ Jones - As charismatic, stylish and inspirational today as he has ever been!
Rodney Sumpter - A game changer when he returned to the UK from Oz in the mid 60s.
Laird Hamilton - A force of nature in big/huge waves and another star of Riding Giants.
Mitch Corbett / Mark ‘Egor’ Harris - Tough to choose between these guys! Both incredibly talented with an absolute passion for surfing and for surfing the best of British waves. They’ve made the project an absolute pleasure!
Honourable mention goes to the omitted…Kelly Slater!
