Whippin’ Work: Chippa Wilson

“Could you imagine if that was a left?” After a few consecutive days of surfing Keramas and Car Parks — two extraordinary rights in their own, well, right — Chippa Wilson’s imagination drifted to the left and asked for mine to follow it. “Fuck. That’d be sick,” I replied, meaning good sick and not hospital gown sick. Then we woke up this morning to a dying swell and Chippa’s imagination pulled us far away from the land of the rights. We surfed a fun-sized, fun-lipped lefthander aaaaand Chippa went ahead and got nine clips in one session. Watch ’em all in the edit above. Not too bad for a chest high day.

Now, could you image if Car Parks was a left? —Brendan Buckley
