American Surfing Round Table | Surfing Magazine

Surfing Magazine’s American Surfing Round Table | Part Two

On a hot, sweaty night in late 2015, Surfing Magazine sat down with some of the biggest names in American surfing to discuss where competitive surfing is headed. In a beach house off the coast of the North Shore, Brett Simpson, Nat Young, CJ Hobgood, Kelly Slater, and Kolohe Andino talk everything from why the number of Americans on Tour have declined, to the cultural reasoning behind American vs. Brazilian motivating factors and if it’s tied to competitive surfing. The guys grapple over the amateur system in American surfing, and if surfers from Hawaii should surf for America or create their own representing body. Check it out.
