Watch: Wade Carmichael // COVID swell throwaways

Stu Nettle
Reels

Don't be fooled by the homepage image which shows Wade in a barrel, water falling around him, as in the rest of the clip the water is moving in the opposite direction.

The clip is short, real short, but hits harder than a triple ristretto on a slow Monday afternoon.

It's put together by Rusty and Jesse Little, the music by Metallica, and it's kinda unlicensed, so hopefully they've more become understanding since the whole Napster saga.

fucking oath Wadeo!

picked the song before watching. It reminded me of that "A Day In The Life.." movie from 00's. Never actually saw it, just always used to watch the trailer on one of those ASMF dvds

I am the bone

What an animal!, I had the pleasure of surfing with him in Portugal, spent 80% of the time with jaw agape.

If only he did a couple of those devastating turns at the end of this heat (skip to 4:00): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCGt-sJqMvY - would have given the judges no choice but to give him the nod.

How good would it be to see him take a few wins and challenge for a world world title...if and when it gets going again.

Yes love watching a chunky chap destroy waves. More than buckets, like a fire hose.

What the fuck is the Wade 'the man capable of tearing so fucking hard' Carmichael doing flicking out a pissweak 57 seconds for?

can you imagine the conversation: "we'll give 'em less than a minute, that leave em wanting more."

That's fuckin weak as piss - you don't draw lines like that do ya? fuck no.

Sack your PR shonks and DIY for fuck sake.

Breath. Murdoch's empire will one day fail to control our minds.

(from youtube) "Wade and Jesse have been putting in work since the big dog signed with the Rdot and the WSL season has been on hold. Travelling up and down the east coast where possible or legal and stacking clips for a full length. Here's some stuff thats not going to make it..."
