You’ve just been shooting in the Ments for the SurfStitch boardshort campaign. Give us a run down of the concept and the good times!?
Billabong sent me to the Ments with a couple pairs of their newest boardshorts and pretty much said go and have a blast!! And that’s what we did, surfed our brains out, went fishing and talked a heap of shit! Meanwhile the photographer Quinn and the filmier Micky captured the whole lot!
Describe the best and standout session?
The funnest session for me would have to of been a late arvo surf out Thunders. All the boys and myself were drinking tins on the the Nomand (which is the boat we were lucky enough to stay on) a couple good stories were going down and a couple good laughs. Then I can’t remember who it was, maybe it was Asher, but they said “what are the odds you go out thunders right now Shaun? On the foamy no fins and no leg rope? “
I replied “ummm, five!” so we counted down “3,2,1” and we both shout “4 at the same time” which meant I had to go out!! So all the boys and myself jumped in the boomerang which is the tender for the nomad and pinned it straight to thunders. I jumped off the boat with the foamy and it wasn’t until I got in the line up that I relised that I wasn’t completely sober. Any way I’m bobbing around the lineup waiting for a set, mean while all the boys on the boomerang are skullng bintangs, blasting warumpi band through the boat speakers and having a hell time.
I could see a couple of lumps on the horizon and the boys started shouting “set!! set” As it got closer I realised it was actually pretty solid. i turned around and went the first one that came to me, I somehow got a rail in whilst flying down the face on my bum!! i could hear all the boys in the channel streaming and hooting as I flicked off I pulled back to the boomerang and was rewarded a “Jenny” which is a beer bong that the captain Jake had made, it consist of half a litre water bottle duc-taped to an old fuel hose!!! Was definitely an arvo to remember!!
What boards did you ride most?
I surfed the foamie alot just because its always a laugh, but I surfed a board that I shaped with my Dad. Its got the crazy flyer to chop tail and it seemed to actually work really good. Especially surfing out lances left!
