Ashton Goggans Returns - Filming "No Contest," Highlighting Unexpected Places, Plus "How Surfers Get Paid"
Stab editor-at-large and producer Ashton Goggans joins the three-timers club and returns to The Lineup to talk about everything he's been up to lately. He starts by discussing the new season of No Contest: Off Tour, the interesting surfers and unexpected places it highlights and getting to film, surf, and meet the locals in Morocco, Tahiti, and beyond. He discusses his role at Stab, the importance of access, making memorable content that lasts, their illuminating series How Surfers Get Paid, and finding the right tone for criticism. Ashton also touches on living in the North Shore surf mecca, the proposed new judging tower in Tahiti, the new Electric Acid Surfboard Test with Shaun Manners, the compendium of surf history and stoke he is building, what a No Contest Residency with Thermal would look like, and what Championship Tour surfer he'd have the best chance against.
