Manly's been a mix of running rip bowls and super fun A-frames all week for the Australian Open, and so far Julian owns the performance of the event thanks to this ridiculous alley oop to air rev combination. Jules' home on the Sunshine Coast sees pretty similar surf for most of the year, along with 100s of other towns around the world, and because of this, his Air 17 is built for exactly these conditions. Average to decent/punchy beachbreaks, and high performance surfing. Board breakdown, below (he's 6'0" / 80kg): AIR 17 - 6'0 1/2" x 18 3/4" x 2 3/8" x 28.2L

Julian's thrown down a handful of the best video parts in the world over the last few years, but this one might just be his best yet. From all-time Cloudbreak to perfect Keramas and some ridiculous performances at home on the Sunshine Coast, Wayward is an absolute masterpiece that we still can't quite wrap our heads around.

Almost that time of year again! Jules always goes pink with his Quik Pro Gold Coast quiver as a part of his support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation, with art either by his talented mum Nola, or our resident sprayer Adrian Turner (above).
Exactly six weeks from now the WSL's 2017 CT circus kicks off on the Gold Coast, and the Traktor Team are all starting to dial in boards for whatever Snapper might throw at them for the season opener! Read More

Joel, burning a whole lotta speed in just about the finest way possible! On the smaller days in Hawaii, he's been riding a HYFI Monsta Box - 5'10" x 19 1/4" x 2 3/8" x 28.1L (he's 6'0" / 83kg). Photo Trevor Moran Read More

If your strong point is a solid combination of big rail turns and hunting tubes, you'll always take the opportunity to work on the other parts of your game. Ace Buchan, air guy. Photo Trevor Moran Read More

Spring shorey fun with J-Dub and the Board of the Year! Photo Grant Sproule
This time of year on the east coast normally comes with weeks of northerlies and barely any swell, but that doesn't mean you can't still have fun if you have the right board! While Jules was passing through Newcastle he grabbed a stock HYFI Blak Box 2 right off the rack at Sanbah, and subsequently blew up on the thing in typical springtime slop all over town. At 6'0" / 80kg, he rides a 5'9" x 19 5/8" x 2 3/8" x 28.3L. Read More

Joel's Hawaiian blades, looking sharp.
With three Triple Crown titles, a Pipe Masters and numerous 10 point rides (including a perfect heat) in the proving grounds, Hawaii's always been a happy hunting ground for our world champ! Read More
