Dangerous Dark Horse: Surf Ripper Adam Melling’s ESPN Interview


He definitely doesn’t dominate the headlines.

In fact, Oakley star ripper Adam Melling barely makes it into the surf mags’ major stories. But make no mistake, he’s as dangerous as anyone on the Tour to contend for the top of the rankings. And it’s not in anyone’s best interest to sleep on this badass Aussie.

How easy it is to forget: It’s no walk in park growing up and plowing through the ranks of Surfdom in Australia. And he’s one of the few who ripped hard enough to do so.

ESPN recently reemphasized the point with a solid interview – complete with insight on what makes him tick.
