The Origins Of The Championship Tour With Rabbit On The Lineup

Episode 47

1978 World Champion and Dream Tour architect Wayne "Rabbit" Bartholomew talks about dreaming of a thing called Pro Surfing, willing it into existence, and creating the Championship Tour with his colleagues. The Australian surf icon shares amazing stories of his early days, from growing up in Coolangatta in the 1960s and 70s, to his eye-opening first trip to Hawaii, to winning the World Title in 1978. He also touches on the day shortboards changed surfing, Mick Fanning, sharks, Australia's title hopes with Jack Robinson and Ethan Ewing, and running for office in 2020.
