Jack Robinson, 17, Freak

“Just try not to think,” says Jack Robinson of the challenges presented by heaving Chopes. Sound advice in one sense, utterly impracticable in another. Try not to think about pink elephants and you will inevitably think about pink elephants; try not to think about falling to your death on the Teahupoo reef and sure enough you’ll think of nothing else. Insouciance just comes naturally to this particular Western Australian tearaway. Now here’s three and a bit minutes of deliciously disinhibited surfing.
