Mark Occhilupo is a world champion surfer. He is also one of the most genuine characters in our sport of surfing. The producers of the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars decided that putting him in black sleeveless vest with sequins and teaching him how to dance would be a good idea.
“the worst performance in 11 seasons… it was truly awful..”
“you are not only a goofyfooted surfer, but a goofyfooted dancer as well.”
“stick to surfing.”
These were the first three comments out of the judges mouths.
Apparently the most praised bottom turn in surfing doesnt make up for a complete lack of rhythm. Occy’s response to the judges was “you dont give zeroes do you?”
Always a legend.
