Riding the Waves
"Jack's a great surfer," Slater says. "He was probably never gonna be, like, world-pro level, but he could have had a living surfing. He could have turned pro and done some events. He's not a radical, flashy guy. He's just a good, clean surfer with a really nice style. And he likes powerful waves. He likes going fast. He's a powerful surfer, so he likes the wave that kind of pushes back and has some energy to it. I think people don't have an understanding of how good Jack is as a surfer. He's not, like, some guy who surfs on the side for pastime. He's pretty serious about surfing."
