While on our Australian Advencha, we were luck enough to connect with Manly Surf School to see if we could rent some boards for the day… Once they heard about our Wildcat background, they made our experience a step above any other and called on one of their friends to join in on our paddle. 2x World Champion Tom Carroll…
Our paddle out got in the Manly Daily Newspaper! Read the Article here: http://manly-daily.whereilive.com.au/news/story/possibilities-still-endless/
Testimonial by Tom Carrol Post Surf:
I really appreciated the experience!!! So special. Helped me get grounded and get going on a day where my head could've been lost to thoughts regarding Andy Irons passing away. You guys saw to that issue, thanks so much. Great to hear that Matt could get onto a few by himself, that must be such a buzz for him!! Let's stay connected. There maybe another session in future and I'd love to be included. Take good care, never say never!!! Cheers, Tom
