"The guy’s got a big mouth and never stops whining about the WSL. Let’s see that dude step up!" says former world champ Shaun Tomson.
Six years ago at the 2016 Surfer Poll awards in Hawaii, and during a group acceptance speech by Globe teamriders for best movie, the Australian surfer Noa Deane leaned into the microphone and said, “Fuck the WSL!”
The throwaway line caused much distress and Noa issued an apology shortly
Creed McTaggart and “Baby” Dion Agius, who were on stage when the immortal line was issued, say Noa didn’t leave his room at the Turtle Bay Hotel for three days and that he cried for most of it.
“Noa was getting fucking death threats! He cried for three days!” Creed told the insanely popular podcast Ain’t That Swell.
Recently, the former world champion Shaun Tomson said, “The guy’s got a big mouth and never stops whining about the WSL. Let’s see that dude step up!”
Anyway, what better way for Noa to silence critics than by violently undulating his round dimpled butt in the fading glow of an Australian east coast sunset, humping his LSD signature model and galloping madly for the finish line.
