Day in the Life | Wade Goodall Our Favorite Aussie Aerialist Couchsurfs Through Newport


Wade got a call from Dane Reynolds and Nathan Fletcher that a certain mainland Mex slab had a manageable swell coming.  So he hopped a flight from Oz to Orange County only to find out the swell was too steep, so he manned the SWELL couch for a few days hoping to score the Newport Jetties before the next swell hits Mex. Spoiler Alert: Beer-Consumed > Waves Ridden

8:15am -Wade wakes up to the groovy folk tunes of his sister’s band The Salvadoreans outta Sydney.

Metal Jimmy took time away from running West Newport to sign a copy of his signature film. It’s now the pride of the house.
