Modern Gypsy

JAY "Bottle" Thompson is The Modern Gypsy, a hard life meaning you travel the world getting endlessly shacked.

He's lucky to be a modern surf gypsy as if he was just a simple 'modern gypsy' then he'd have featured in a recent Channel Four documentary series on the subject. It wasn't pretty and definitely involved less surfing.

As it stands this edit by Russell Brownley is infinitely better and Jay is our kind of gypsy. The smooth-surfing Queenslander doesn't appear to be missing the World Tour one little bit.
