Our guest for the third episode of the Tracks Podcast hosted by Luke Kennedy is Tom Curren.

In the early 80s Tom Curren hit the scene as the Californian prodigy with the trademark double-pump bottom and the magnetic style. Between 1985 and 1990 Tom claimed three world titles. The 1990 title was famously won by surfing events all the way through from the trials stage. A record not even Kelly Slater will ever match.

After setting a new benchmark for pro surfing, Tom hung up the singlet and influenced surfing from an entirely different perspective. Roaming the globe as part of the Rip Curl Search he carved an indelible path as a free surfer – it was the same Tom Curren but there were new lines, different boards and better waves. Tom helped pave the way for a whole generation to choose the free surfing path.

Enjoy!
