Watch: Jai Glindeman // Glitch
While many freesurfers call themselves that after a failed tilt at comps, 19-year old Jai Glindeman is more of a purist - fella hasn't donned a coloured vest since 2020.
Surfing under the Bong umbrella, trips and clips will be standard fare for his career. Which isn't so bad for a kid who's surfing is easy on the eye. Think a mix of Curren's style, Trent Munro's power, and even Cheyne Horan's power squat. Could perhaps even mention Parko, especially considering the content of this clip.
In fact, I got myself so distracted wondering who he reminded me of that the clip slipped away. Had to rerun it.
Besides what we already knew, Glitch shows that Jai is building a heavy water act, and he's doing it without losing a skerrick of style.
