The brand new episode of Wavelength’s podcast It’s Not The Length is LIVE.
Hosts Evans & Mondy digest the dramatic fare served up on the final day of the WSL 2019 season at the Billabong Pipeline Masters.
Ua Mau ke Ea o ka ‘Aina ika Pono!
Unlike the ancient Hawaiian ali’i (royalty), who viewed obesity as a sign of nobility and thus had their bellies massaged whilst being fed enormous portions of poi (taro root) so they could cram more in, the lads needed no extra help or encouragement to ruminate over ‘Medina Prio-Gate 2 – This Time It’s Personal… & Intentional’, and all the other fascinating stuff that went down at the Banzai.
The North Shore remains the subject matter for the entirety of the pod, with the Seven Mile Miracle being the subject for regular fave Good / Bad.
Evans & Mondy then delve into a series of personal anecdotes related to all things Hawaiian surfing, but mainly hone in on Island interactions with semi obscure late 90’s-early 2000’s surf pros.
Why did Tom Carroll leave the toilet unflushed at their shared digs on Mondy’s first Hawaii trip?
What’s the best thing not to say if you drop in on then rugby tackle Ken Bradshaw in 12-15ft surf?
How did AI take his tea when Mondy was billeted at the Bong house?
Why are the Pipemasters crowds so small?
Which women’s World Champ dropped in Mondy at macking Sunset?
Which former CT surfer coined the nickname “Waimea Paul” as a mark of respect for Evans’ heroics?
Find out all this and so much more in It’s Not The Length Hawai’i Special!
