Australian surfing team Rusty has released their highlight reel of 2017.
Second to appear is 21-year-old Noah Schweizer, whose favorite time of year to surf is Hurricane season.
“It’s always a risk when going into a hurricane,” he writes, “You could always play it safe and stay away or you can chase it and hopefully stay out of harm’s way and score up the coast.
This year I tried to be there for as many storms as I could,”
In an interview with Rusty, Noah said, “Right now all I want to do is throw everything I have into my surfing and putting out videos that show people what I’ve got.”
“Good surfing to me is someone with good form and style, who surfs fast and never holds back on any section that comes their way. Style plus aggression is where it’s at, and I hope that’s what people see in my surfing.”
“My eventual goal is to make the World Tour, but for now I want to build up experience and get to a point where I’m ready for it. If I can travel a bunch along the way, and go to places where surfers normally don’t, well that would be cool too.”
Rusty are setting their sights high. But with surfers like Noah on the team, even if a natural disaster strikes, they’ll probably just ride the wave.
