Known to be the only two who own 16ft and 80kg ancient Hawaiian Olo replicas in Australia, Dave Rastovich and Tom Wegener are demonstrating with a handful of selected surfers to show how tricky they are to ride even for the most experienced surfer.
An extremely rare experience witnessed by a large audience during BBSF 2013. Ancient surf history was unfolding in front of peoples eyes with modern professional surfers taking them back in time to witness the true meaning of “The Sport of Kings”.
