The object about most current surf edits is they’ve turn out to be relatively…critical. Self-important, virtually. Surf flicks was once a laugh and humorous and irreverent and celebrated the entire stuff that makes using waves so rattling interesting. ‘Postcards From Morgs’ is fashionable in each and every sense of the phrase — however harkens again to the vintage surf flicks of yore. Aussie ripper Morgan Cibilic was once intended to be a 2020 WCT rookie. That didn’t determine so neatly this yr, clearly — however that didn’t imply he was once going to take a seat at the sofa all yr. No longer with surfers like Mick Fanning, Tyler Wright and Owen Wright calling him up. Input a brand new model of The Seek.
“No excursion, no go back and forth — what else are we able to do however make up our personal Seek journeys?” rhetorically requested Cibilic. “After Hawaii and the thrill of creating the ‘CT, all the offseason went through in just a little of a blur. Everybody was once so excited for me and there was once a large number of power coming my approach. After which abruptly, my first ‘CT warmth was once simply across the nook. Or a minimum of it was once intended to be as a result of as everyone knows now, the pandemic hit and in a while after that all the 2020 excursion were given thrown out.”
“Which brings us to now. It’s been a peculiar time, an frightened and unhappy and unsure time for such a lot of folks. There are such a lot of questions and so few solutions, however something I know needless to say is that there’s no approach I might were able for that first CT had the primary comp run at Snapper when it was once intended to. I used to be so undercooked and I feel I will glance again now and admit that I most probably would have got trampled. On the time I had a large number of second-guessing occurring. There was once shit I had to kind out and lockdown introduced me with an out of this world alternative to make some primary changes. There was once nowhere to head and not anything to do however surf and the waves in Australia had been completely pumping. So I surfed six hours an afternoon, on a daily basis. I did training classes with Jay Bottle Thompson and started to really feel more potent and extra assured. I were given my forums utterly dialed and my nervousness about browsing that first CT warmth was anticipation. It now not felt intimidating. I sought after to tear the shit out of it!
“And it was once proper at that second the telephone rang and I used to be being requested to head at the Seek. Come what may in the course of all of this chaos, my goals had been nonetheless coming true.”
