Watch: Griffin Colapinto // Volume 3

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

Looks like this is the third and final instalment of Griff's rookie year on film.

When he turned up for the Quiksilver Pro and scored a Perfect 10 at Kirra, it was like Griff had fallen off the QS conveyor fully formed: no nerves, good head for strategy, and a trunk-full of style.

However, the Quik Pro was his best result of the year and from there he slid down the ratings, only just salvaging his year with a 13th at Pipe.

Volume 3 shows him arriving in Hawaii, and in the 13 plus-minute clip he goes through the motions getting bundled early at Haleiwa, finals at Sunset, and CT salvation at Pipe. Plus plenty of freesurfing in between.

Ripping and charging. Plus the Gary G behaviour at 8:40 is superb.

Griff rips. The slightly conceited inferences towards his older fans is lame, but what the fuck- WolfMother!? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKDvJTxZDbA
Fuck- way to completely ruin it- surly every rejected Eurovision entry would be better.

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