Occ-Cast featuring Christian Fletcher

Two old skool legends, waxing and eating tamales

Potter. Archbold. Occhilupo. Fletcher. My childhood icons. I was half convinced Christian Fletcher was dead, having not caught word on his status for many years now, and knowing how in the wind he lived his life. So this was good to see, despite certain subjects I might not so much agree with.

Maybe I don’t pay enough attention these days to notice the new generation of Fletchers, but I miss the days when surfing had true personalities, however troubled they may have been.
