Australia’s Dylan Longbottom is one of the premier hellmen of our sport– one of those rare humans who takes joy in being terrified. A standout performer in the most deadly conditions, Dylan was one of the only surfers to actually make it out of a proper beast during the Tahiti Code Red mega-swell. In this highlight reel we see some of his more notable sessions at Shipstern’s Bluff, Teahupoo, West Oz, Kirra, and a couple of secret haunts.
In addition to his barrel-riding antics, Longbottom is also one of the only pro surfer/shapers left. He’s been shaping sleds for Laurie Towner, Wade Goodall, and Dean Bowen under his eponymous label Dylan Surfboards for years. Can your shaper do this?
