Watch: The O'Riginals // Flea
O'Neill has reignited the little series they began last year. The first three episodes of 'The O'Riginals' featured lesser-known Aussie surfers doing what they do in the surf and outside of it.
This time 'round, it's Darryl 'Flea' Virostko whose path to rehab resembled that of every other junkie, but his surfing, however, was like no-one else's. In an era of specialists, Flea had it down in big waves and small, airs and barrels, towing and paddling.
This clip, which clocks in around twelve minutes has plenty of period footage - coloured neoprene, potato chip rocker ships - plus surfers being "arseholes", Flea's description not mine, along with the Flea detailing his path to rehab (Fleahab!) and onwards to redemption in the water.
