Gold Cone Piece Blitzing! With His Holy Frothness Nick Carroll

AIN'T THAT SWELL

Nobody has reported on more World Title Showdowns than 23-time Gold Cone Piece Award Winner Nick Carroll (of House Frotherian). He was at Waikiki in 1914 when Duke Kahanamoku flogged Tom Blake's much loathed kook-box design on nothing but a piece of driftwood. He was at Manly in 64 when Phyllis O'Donnel and Midget shoved it fair up the seppo blow-ins to record the first "official" global championships. He saw the Wounded Gull steal everyone's chippies for four years straight, watched Layne and then Steph win 7 a piece, he sniffed the blood on the sand at Backdoor at the height of the Slater/AI war of 03, and he even watched his younger bruv, Sir Thomas Victor, throw away the un-losable crown in 88. Yep, he's marinated in every win and loss pro surfing has had to offer and boy oh boy does he have some insights into how this latest chapter of the Rip Woz Finals will play out at Trestles. On your feet Swellians, his Holy Frothness Nick Carroll hath entered thy building!See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

People Who Surf

Before Nick Carroll became a treasured journalist and celebrated author, he was one of many red-hot surfers from Sydney’s northern beach of Newport. Matter of fact, the older Carroll brother was a two-time national champion in Australia in 79 and 81. He was also a founding member of the Newport Plus Surf Club, one of Australia’s most powerful. Midway through the 1981 season, the Newport Plus crew had six surfers sitting in the Top 30 on the world rankings. In 1984, when Shaun Tomson and Tom Carroll came to Bells Beach for the world title showdown, it was Nick who eliminated Shaun, securing his little brother his second-straight title. Nick then got busy writing about that day's events for Tracks, where he was the editor. Today at 59, Nick hasn’t slowed at a bit. He’s still surfing his brains out, and channeling his competitive fire into various swim, paddle, and endurance races. He coaches and trains with some of Australia’s hottest talent in that arena, and he’ll be doing his seventh Molokai Challenge in the summer of 2019. Nick’s been writing about surfing for more than 40 years now, gathering incredible insights into our ever-evolving culture, so it’s always a blast catching up with him. As a bonus, there’s some added color from Derek Hynd, a fellow Newport Plus member. Topics run the full spectrum, so strap in and get to know one of surfing’s most coveted tribal leaders.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
