Ben Larg, Big Wave Surfer
We welcome back to the show Red Bull team ride,r Ben Larg.
The last time Ben Larg was on the show, he had just surfed Mully and was dreaming of surfing Nazaré.
Well, since then, not only has he achieved that dream, he also got himself picked by a little brand called Red Bull.
Ben Larg Red Bull Team Rider
Ben says since joining Red Bull, they have been absolutely incredible to him and its been like a dream come true. “They’ve supported with my time out of the water and paid for my surgery” he said which is fantastic!
As you will hear in this episode, Ben has had to take a long time out of the water after getting jumped by a group of locals in Nazare that ended with Ben being left with a perforated ear drum (still don’t know why stuff like this is still happening in surfing – an 18 year old getting jumped by a group of 30/40 + year old men).
As you will hear from this interview, Ben is a lovely lad and really doesn’t deserve this, no one does.
You can also Ben’s documentary on Amazon Prime called Ride The Wave
“Surf champion Ben Larg’s challenge is the biggest and most dangerous waves in the world. Danger, opportunity and parental dilemma collide.”
