At This year’s Rip Curl Bells Beach Easter Classic’s 60th Anniversary, Tom Curren and Mark Occhilupo–two of surfing’s most influential characters and rivals–competed in a special Heritage Heat. The Curren/Occy Rivalry is stuff of legends. Many middle aged men get weak in the knees just mentioning the two. But.. Why? Why do we care so much about this rivalry? What is its importance to pro surfing? Who are these two surfers that captured our imaginations and have inspired generations of surfers? We dive in and give context to surf history.
