We were searching for an unlikely collaboration for our latest boardshort test, and when we heard our friend, and world class surfer, Jack Freestone was on-board to front-up our expedition we knew we were in for something special. We’d been watching Jack’s natural transition from elite competitive surfing to a nuanced, alternate style and were thrilled to shoot to Oaxaca, Mexico, to put him to the test in the best alternate trunks on the market. Ours.
Jack’s clinical abilities and aerobatic flair were complimented by the smooth, punchy Huatulco lines. The ardent style of drawing effortless shapes into empty right-handers unveiled a utopian realm of bliss. And we left slaked, having discovered our oasis on the coastal edge of paradise.
