Kelly Slater Retirement Talk, Coaching John John And The Momentum Days, Ross Williams Breaks It All Down

Episode 63

Momentum Generation icon, former Championship Tour competitor, and commentator-turned-coach Ross Williams talks about the differences between surfing in 2021 compared to when he was on tour in the 1990s, from the boards to the dream contest locations to the level of progression. He looks back at growing up on the North Shore, becoming friends at a young age with Kelly Slater and Shane Dorian, his gradual transition into becoming a pro surfer, and shooting the era-defining Momentum films with his peers. He dives into the world of surf coaching, how he tries to bring out that last 10% that can create a huge difference, and his work with World Champion John John Florence, CT competitor Tatiana Weston-Webb, and some up-and-coming Hawaiian talents.
