Dylan Longbottom was a previous guest on the show, dating back to episode 27 in which we recorded in his surfboard showroom in Berawa, Canggu Bali. Amongst surfers, Dylan is a legend of the tribe. A fearless slab-hunting, eternal grommet, who has dedicated his life to progression in all that he does. The Longbottom family's rich surfing history and influence are subtly entrenched throughout modern day surfing and surf culture as we know it. Dylan’s journey from being a pro-junior to professional free-surfer for Billabong, to big-wave tow-in pioneer at slabs like Teahupoo in Tahiti (yes, including the legendary Code Red Swell), to surfboard shaper and craftsman has continued to perpetuate and re-enforce the legacy of the Longbottom family. A legacy that is already being passed on to his children.  Last time we caught up, Dylan was preparing big-wave guns and tow-boards for his riders in time for the European winter, specifically at Nazare in Portugal. Dylan discussed his humble beginnings in Cronulla before moving to the south coast of New South Wales, we discussed the East Coast Low of 2016, his stuntman work on Point Break 2, his shaping journey and beyond...legendary stories. Now, more than ever, life has a way of going full-circle, and in this week's episode Dylan is with me in his newly opened Boardroom in Cronulla (where it all began) to share his journey, experiences, challenges and hopes for the future.
