Frothing on this podcast

I am primarily a standup surfer and this is my favorite wave riding podcast. Great guests and compelling interviews. Entertaining and informative about bodyboarding in Oz and internationally. Aussies are generally way more funny and down to earth than Americans, case in point this show. Bodyboarding in the 2020s is straight up more hardcore than surfing, MAD RESPECT to all the lid chargers prone and on the knee.
