Late Drop – The Big Wave Podcast: Jamie Mitchell Hosts Ross Clarke-Jones

Posted by on Oct 9, 2020 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Big-wave visionary? Middle-aged grom? Good Time Charlie? Screw loose? For one of the big-wave world’s most unforgettable characters, Ross Clarke-Jones is most likely all of the above. One of the first men to make an actual career out of big-wave surfing, RCJ’s love affair with Waimea Bay finally earned him an Eddie win in 2001 — maybe the most coveted of big-wave accomplishments. Simultaneously a tow-surf god, RCJ pioneered the unruly waters of Nazare, trading North Shore winters for European staycations. Stuck in Australia until further notice, Jamie Mitchell chats with the very vibrant and frothy Ross Clarke-Jones in the newest episode of the Late Drop. Share this: Like...

Swells that break off glaciers, others that surge up rivers, and then, roping sand bottom rights that hiss like rattlesnakes as they grind and spit for over a mile long. Share this: Like...
