Footage of Tom Curren ripping Trestles on Surfline is worth watching. It's mired in the middle of the usual Surfline drivel , but I'm calling it's at least as watchable as anything put out by any current pro. Not too many air reverses in there but sooooo smooth.
It's in the middle of celebrations of his 50th birthday.... Did I mention Surfline drivel ?
Quiet hands I think they call it in snowboarding.
This clip of Curren is one of my faves (screen ratio is a bit whack but it can't mask the style):
Stu - 2.21
its o.k. even Curran claims.
Makes me feel a bit better.
...but of course my one wasn't a claim.
The man rips.
So much style..makes most of todays surfers look like robots.
Have to agree with what I read elsewhere: give Curran a wild card at j bay.
Agreed, beautiful style combined with power and flow. Curren is a benchmark surfer, one who others often measure themselves against.
Taylor Knox has a lot of Curren in his style.
Taylor knox was in NZ a few months back shredding me local, really nice dude, impeccable water etiquette to boot. A nice set come through and I had priority but I said ''you go' he said "are you sure" and I said ''hell yeah''.
