    Stab editor-at-large and producer Ashton Goggans returns to the Lineup Podcast. He talks about what he’s been up to over the last few years, including launching Stab Premium, creating the documentary Andy Irons & The Radicals, working on a new Electric Acid Surfboard Test and Stab In The Dark, and making surf movies while being locked down in Los Angeles. He describes watching the Rip Curl WSL Finals from Brazil and shares his thoughts on the format, Steph’s historic win, Filipe’s breakthrough, the surfers who impressed him most, and why he was rooting for Jack Robinson. He talks about working for the past six months on No Contest (dropping this month), evolving it from a behind-the-scenes tour show to more of an in-depth travel show, partnering with Red Bull, his Bourdain-like approach, and all the wild places the show has taken him over the past year. Ashton also touches on what he’d love to see Steph Gilmore do next, Electric Acid Surfboard Test’s disruptive collaborations, the dominance of Brazilians on the Championship Tour, what’s coming next for Stab, and what his job title actually means.

My favourite podcast

Even if you know nothing about surfing, this is just an awesome long form podcast. And if you like surfing, even better. Dave also takes a stand on important issues of the day, which I respect and admire him for. Highlight of my week!

Great Podcast

A great listen and awesome insight into the tour and the minds of the pros!

Naive

Dave started out ok. Sadly now happy to peddle deliberate misinformation in support of a cause which has put the genuine cause of racial harmony back 40 years.
