Jeff Hubbard spills the beans on No Friends returning, Guilherme Tamega, sore nuts & more!
After our first two episodes of the Riptide Bodyboarding Podcast featured Aussie special guests (Free Surf World Tour head Danny Bycroft and Newcastle’s finest Dallas Singer) we thought it was time to give the show some international flair – and who bigger on the world stage than three-time World Champ Jeff Hubbard of Kauai!
In this episode we talk to Jeff about how this Hawaii season rated, the possible return of No Friends, the competitive animal that is Guilherme Tamega, the elusive 720 air forward, the Hubboards brand, sore nads and much, much more! Thanks for listening.
