Today’s episode is all about the World Champs! Who are they and why do we care? We explore the purpose of having a world champion, the different formats to decide a title, and the figures and personalities that make up the long list of past, present and future world champions. And the Breuer Bros battle it out to see who’s number one when it comes to surf trivia with the ultimate Stump My Bro.
