The Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational presented by Vans was held in perfect loggerwaves at Noosa on the weekend, with local Harrison Roach taking out the final. Tudor said, “I’ve been coming to Noosa for many years and always enjoy seeing my friends and the local surf community. This event showcased the local talent and brought traditional loggin’ back to its roots.”
The video below sums up the vibe, and for my liking, at eight minutes is about 7 and half minutes too long, but hey, who am I we to piss on anyone’s retro parade. Only last week I saw the editor riding a single fin in a shorebreak, with no leggie, saying to anyone who would listen, “Hey man, chill out, go with the flow, let’s get back to the real nature of surfing,” and other such bullshit.
