Paul Evans & Ben Mondy return with another thrilling instalment of It’s Not The Length podcast.

Recording on location in Playa de las Americas, Tenerife, the lads are at the coal face of European and global professional surfing, commentating on the QS with dedication and professionalism during the day, and recording the pod in their shared hotel room over cans of Estrella lager, by night.
Desperate to make an appearance on the show, Volcom Pipe Pro winner Jack Robinson rings in from Waikiki where he’s holed up with model girlfriend in a free hotel room riding out a huge storm on the N Shore.
Robbo shares his goals for 2019, and fills in INTL fans with a bit of insight in to what makes him tick, as well as generally makes him such an all round ledge.
In the pursuit of journalistic integrity/a bizarre display of career self-harm, Mondy potentially jeopardises his lucrative WSL staff writer contract by nominating 7x World Champ Stephanie Gilmore for slaughter in the abbatoir of Sacred Cow.
Unhappy with Steph’s alleged lack of progression, her guitar playing and her photography, Mondy’s vicious, unprovoked broadside is just the latest stain on a chequered career.
Elsewhere, topics up for discussion include surf posters (RIP), the emotional rollercoaster involved in going for a surf as an older dude, Munich’s Eisbach standing wave as featured in Dylan Grave’s Weird Waves, and of course Mondy getting sent in by the Tenerife locals.
After a day of snaffling a couple set waves out the back, and a night out the town, the next morning Mondy was brought back down to size by one particular local who wasted little time in putting Mondy back in his place (amongst the groms on the inside).
