Successful comebacks are like happy endings, you could write a movie or a documentary about it. The Occy come back from his couch years to win a world title is the most famous and celebrated one but this year, behind all the Tour talks, a similar story is in the making.

Chris ‘Davo’ Davidson, sure that name rings a bell. Remember the golden Search years withTom Curren, Franky and the feral crew, well, circa 1998, Davo was a star. Winning contests, freesurfing secret locations in front of the best lensmen and cameramen. Everything was going his way, he was one of the spoiled child of the surf industry. He burnt the candle by both ends quickly and everyone loved him for it. The perfect rebel & bad boy for his sponsors!

Then came the dreadful years, dropping out of the WCT, not making a heat, injuries, family problems, drugs etc. It is a common story happening to an un common surfer. You wouldn’t have bet a dollar at that time on the guy believe me…
