Ethan Ewing’s first year on tour was a tough one, a seemingly endless run of last placings saw his run on tour over before it even began. To recoup Ethan headed home to North Stradbroke where he could fly under the radar, surf and regain some of the confidence a surfer of his ability should possess.

It also helped that the waves absolutely pumped over the summer, allowing Ethan the ability to regain the stoke and put it all behind him. We can’t wait to see the kid back on tour soon.
