SAN CLEMENTE, California/USA (Monday, March 1, 2010) – Luke Stedman (AUS), 33, is back this season amongst the world’s best following a year of injury in 2009. Ever the larrikin, one of professional surfing’s most stylish exports recently sat down with Surfing Magazine to indulge in some probing dialogue. This…is their story…
The setting sun over the Snapper Rocks is so pretty. Still white clouds jive on a powder blue canvas, refusing to turn pink and whatnot. Defying the natural order of things and whatnot. Strange crows are singing strange songs. A turkey vulture dances on a tin roof across the street. It has been hot hot today but it is no longer. It is deck time cocktail hour at Apartment 11. A finer thing. Grey Goose vodka and cranberry on cracked ice with a dash of bitters. Simple and refreshing. It is also time to discuss the finer things with such a totally finer man. Luke Stedman.
He is easy, wearing grey cut-off corduroy shorts, a grey and black striped tank top and a long sleeved cowboy themed Hawaiian shirt. Guitars and broncos. A purple knit cap covers his perfectly sun bleached thatch.
He is the most finer man in all of surfing.
And we discuss…
His kind of women:
“I like ‘em fun and entertaining. That is my kind of woman.”
I tell him that I know his women and “fun/entertaining” would not be primary deive adjectives for them. He throws his head back and laughs deeply.
