Rob Bain: Survived The Tsunami, Smashed His Skull In Now Talks To Vaughan & Jed

9 Aug 2017 0

AIN'T THAT SWELL | PODCAST

Hosted by Jed Smith & Vaughan Blakey

He’s a former World Number One who survived a tsunami, smashed his skull into a rock at North Avalon, ripped the skin off a Marlboro Red after being washed in by a 40 foot clean up set at Waimea Bay in 86, scored the first 10 of his career against Slater and Carroll in his last event on tour, and he once threatened to punch out Surfing World Editor and Ain't That Swell co-host Vaughan Dead for sinking the white ball in a game of pool (because they were on the same team).

He’s Big Bad Bob Bain and he’s the special guest host on the new Ep of Ain’t That Swell talking all things JBay, Puerto Escondido BWWWT, 1980s Euro Leg debauchery, near death experiences, and much much more.
