Laurie Towner is a humble, down to earth bloke who just happens to charge some of the heaviest waves in the world.
In this episode we chat about Laurie’s epic wave at Cloudbreak, his challenges with sponsors over the years and the one time he really didn’t want to paddle out.
Plus Jimmy and Cahill have a full wrap up of the Margaret River Pro including a look at John and Ciao Ibelli’s surfing, our love affair with sharks and Lakey Peterson’s epic win.
Finally Cahill talks about his new found appreciation for surf travel and charging big barrels and he and Jimmy argue about who gets to decide what “better” women’s surfing is.
So surf it hurts and as always fuelled by the legends at Salt Brewing Co.
