A peak behind the curtain of your most treasured surfing slices from the year just gone.
On our Instagram account we’ve been doing a countdown of the 25 most-watched clips of 2022. For the top 10, which will get us to the dying embers of the year, we thought we’d dig a little deeper into the videos themselves.
It’s a peak behind the curtain on just why these slivers of surfing from 2022 proved so popular with the Wavelength faithful. You’re a strange bunch, sure, but you know your surfing, and you know what you like. And that’s what we love about ya.
No. 9: Jack Says Sorry
Pro surfers and Peniche bodyboarders have history. Joel Parkinson once found himself at the centre of a controversial blow-up in a freesurf session, after being dropped in on by a booger, while many other visiting surfers have felt the ire of the Supertubes locals.
In this example though Jack Robinson takes a new approach to the age-old problem, launching and landing a massive rotor just in front of the bodyboarder who had scorched him. For us, and our Insta fans, it was perhaps Robbo’s multiple apologies that really iced the cake. Maybe, just maybe, even the bodyboarder couldn’t take offence.
