Tom Curren, J-Bay

The stylemaster tests boards at the world's best pointbreak

Two things we can never get enough of: Tom Curren and J-Bay. Throw them together, even better. While in South Africa for the Heritage Series event of the J-Bay Open, Tom got busy testing surfboards at the world’s best pointbreak. In this 4-minute video by Eugenio Sarmento, you’ll see the 50-year-old stylemaster ride a variety of different craft, including a finless wooden plank (2:38). As expected, Tom looks stylish regardless of what he’s on.

    From my perspective Tom put everyone else to shame at J-Bay by not only doing fluid, powerful and graceful turns but also road most waves as far as he could. By watching other heats at J-Bay a lot of the the pro’s were left behind on many waves because of contest pressure to do that “big maneuver.”
