    Stab CUSP: Fistfights With Andy Irons, Miracle Backdoor Waves, And Surf Coaches Who "Cheat"

    Stab CUSP: Fistfights With Andy Irons, Miracle Backdoor Waves, And Surf Coaches Who "Cheat"

    Jake 'Snake' Paterson has a notoriously firm rump, hardened by years sand dune runs and sitting out the back for the wave of the day. While that wave didn't always arrive in his allotted half-hour, Snake always made great use when it did, taking down the Pipe Masters and Jeffrey's Bay event (x2) against admittedly superior surfers.

    After a decade on the Tour that was successful by most any measures (did you know Snake was once a single heat away from winning the World Title—true!), he moved onto team-managing for his long-time sponsor Quiksilver, then spent the last decade or so coaching the next gen of competitive hell-raisers. (Remember the Zeke vs. John heat at Bells? Who do you think was in the (native) Hawaiian's corner?)

    Alas, one of competitive surfing's greatest minds has decided to hang up his orange hand towel and head to more UV-friendly pastures, taking over the CEO position of sunscreen brand We Are Good Times Inc.

    Since the Stab CUSP is one-half comprised of CT coaches (hey, Stace) and almost 100% comprised of competitive chatter, we thought it was only right to invite Snake on for a proper podcast send-off. Due to scheduling issues (with CUSP co-host Mike Ciaramella being on the opposite side of the globe to Snake, who resides in his native WA), Stace handled the chat alone.

    Over the course of an hour, the one-time peers covered a myriad of topics, from fistfights with Andy Irons, miracle Backdoor waves, surf coach accusations and everything in between.

    Relive glory and defeat, here.

    Snake comes on around the 3-minute mark.

    Mike and Stace banter/outro starts around 1hr 6m

    Stab Unplugged: What Derails Carissa Moore And Mick Fanning?

    Stab Unplugged: What Derails Carissa Moore And Mick Fanning?

    This week, 'RISS' star Carissa Moore joins Stab Unplugged with Mick Fanning, who chips away at her armor of optimism in an attempt to mine hidden truths.

    While relatively unsuccessful (Carissa's armor is forged of triple-plated steel), it was fascinating to hear a three- and four-time World Champion discuss what motivates and derails them, competitively.

    For Carissa, it's a lack of self-focus. For Mick, it's stoplights and compensatory wetsuit runs.

    We also asked Carissa if there was any truth to the rumor that she pays local coaches to block for her during freesurfs at CT venues.

    Hit play for a verbal chess match!

    Stab Unplugged w/ Mick Fanning: This interview will change your perception of Gabe Medina forever.

    Stab Unplugged w/ Mick Fanning: This interview will change your perception of Gabe Medina forever.

    For the third episode of Mick Fanning and Stab's interview series Unplugged, Mick and Stab's Sam McIntosh linked up with Gabriel Medina from his current location in Maresias, Brazil.

    Mick and Sam were able to unravel the famously mysterious Medina. Here's just some of the things we learnt in this interview:

    First job: No shit, Gabe Medina used to park cars as a six year old.

    The biggest waves he’s ever surfed have been in a jersey.

    Subject: Little help?
    The Pipe Masters forecast was looking huge and Gabe asked Mick Fanning how to surf Pipe. Via email.

    Gabe regrets the Caio Ibelli drop-in in Portugal.

    "Isn’t he a d******d?" Mick Fanning talks his flatmate’s response when Gabe was coming to stay.

    He knows absolutely nothing about surfboards except he likes em big. “I ride the same size as Jordy"

    Gabe is the only surfer on tour who likes Lemoore. “They should hold the whole 2020 tour there,” laughs Gabe.
