Julian Wilson’s Pink Surfboards

julian wilson pink surfboardIt wouldn’t be possible to move on from the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast coverage without mentioning 18 yr. old Julian Wilson. He surfed well and was eventually eliminated by runner-up Mick Fanning. As impressive as he was in the water, he should be greatly recognized for his actions outside of competitive surfing.

The young ripper showed up to Snapper with a quiver of pink boards that he will be auctioning off to raise money for breast cancer research. He said his inspiration was his mother, who battled breast cancer when he was a kid.

It’s not often a young guy would opt to ride a pink board, but Julian did just that. When I saw him making his way to the keyhole at Snapper before his heats, I was taken by the image of his pink board tucked underneath his arm.

Julian Wilson will continue to explode and push the limits of what is possible on a surfboard. His ’sushi roll’ blew my mind when I first saw the video. But it is the heart of this young man that will continue to lead him to greatness.
