VIDEO GUY OF THE WEEK

…goes to: Justis St. John. Not only did he nail Chris Ward’s top 10 Wave of the Winter entry (see video below) but he also charges Kanduis in the Mentawais on a regular basis riding his 6’0″ Mini-Driver. Here’s an email we received from him, “This board (in the photos) is a 6’0″. I started riding the 5’10 Firewire …Lost Mini-Driver years ago and it pretty much changed the way I look at board design… best board I’ve ever ridden in the Mentawais. I ordered the 6’0 a bit longer, thicker and narrower and bumped the volume up to 30liters. Insane board since it catches waves like a 6’6 but you can still move it around in a barrel”.

CARISSA CONQUERS COOLANGATTA

…or at the least the 2015 Women’s WCT held at Snapper Rocks in Coolangata, Australia. The event kicked off the season for both the men’s and the women’s tour. In spite of winning her first two heats, Carissa was feeling uninspired by the lackluster conditions at Snapper. In response, Matt Biolos (who was in Australia at the time) went to work and whipped up a few different options of small wave pick-me-ups. Eventually she settled on a 5’8″ 18.63″ 2.25″ Sub-Driver and went to work on the final day, taking down in succession Lakey Peterson, Tyler Wright and eventually current world champ Stephanie Gilmore in the final. To watch her 9.03 in the final CLICK HERE.

On the men’s side Taj Burrow and Brasilian rookie Wiggolly Dantas made it to the quarter-finals to start the year off with keeper results.
