COASTALWATCH | RIVALS

"If you thought these guys were good on the World Tour, wait till you see what they can do at home!"

Necessity is the mother of invention, and this invention in the midst of the COVID-19 travel ban, is pretty bloody good. Eleven of Australia’s iconic competitive male surfers will open up old battle scars in this innovative three month, 13 episode show.

Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson, Dean Morrison, Bede Durbidge, Josh Kerr, Danny Wills, Shaun Cansdell, Jay Thompson, Glen Hall, Kai Otton and Nathan Hedge have two hours at their local to surf however they want, on as many waves as they want, with their best three rides to be scored by the public via online platform clippero.com and Olympic Surfing Head Judge Glen Elliot.

This is Episode Number One.
