Here’s a bonus sized episode for you. We cover the WSL’s bid for the Maverick’s permit, the massive Puerto Escondido swell, bid a fond farewell to brother Barney, discuss opening day in Rio, take a Stab in the Dark, call out Dukes and Kooks, and learn about A Fisherman’s Son! As if that’s not enough show for you, we close the show with a conversation with Dr. Rey Banatao about Entropy’s bio-based surfboard resins. It’s a jam packed episode. Can ya dig it?
