Laurie Towner Seeks Heavy Slabs in the Aussie Desert

By on

“It's always hard trying to get time off work to chase waves and also juggle the family and organise that they're going to be ok,” says Laurie Towner in this 12-minute cut above, and isn't that just the truth?

Without doubt, Laurie's one of the finest wranglers of heavy water. This Aussie knows how to thread a tube but you're probably aware of that. “When times aren't super busy now and then through the year, I'm lucky enough to get a week or so off to chase a swell,” just so happens this particular vacay saw Laurie dance in the desert with some wild looking Oz slabs. The ultimate ode to the working, family-orientated surfer. 7 mins 30 secs onwards is particularly brilliant. Enjoy.
