Watch: Russ Bierke // First Name In The Water
Good news in the surf industry?
Hasn't been much of that lately, however an email from Rob Bain from O'Neill bucked the trend. Wrote Bainy: "I'm super stoked to announce that O’Neill has just re-signed Russ Bierke to the global team."
"In a time when anything could happen, and is, it was really nice that we kept Russ as part of the family."
They don't come out often, but when they do, Russ' clips are wildly popular. And the young bloke not only has the ability to thrill, but also generate enormous goodwill. While mixing it with the jutting big wave titans, Russ remains the self-effacing kid from Ulladulla.
Good news for all parties.
The following clip was put together by Andrew Kaineder.
