Julian says...


Julian Wilson has been promoting breast cancer awareness by surfing a pink surfboard, which is great. I've read many articles where he has discussed the issue and his attachment to it through his mum's experience and I think it's great that he's been trying to do the awareness thing in such a fun and public way. Yay for Julian!

However, the much loved and admired glamour boy of pro surfing might just have gone just a little further to the dark side (aka, trying to impress Stab writers and readers so he can remain their 2nd favourite little surfer in the world after Dane Reynolds) with his latest quoted offering that was published in this story in The Courier Mail* about the Quicksilver Pro...

Meanwhile, the quote of day went to Sunshine Coast grommet Julian Wilson, who has won a wildcard into the Quiksilver Pro.

Asked about his decision to ride a pink surfboard to promote breast cancer checks, Wilson told the media he was "just raising awareness for the young girls and women out there . . . to check their tits".

Gracious - what a way with words the young man has developed! Don't they give these people media training or something?

Come on ladies, what are you waiting for? As Julian says "remember to check your tits!"

*And I am fully aware that The Courier Mail is not the most reliable source of news and information in the state, nation, world, but hey! let's go with this.

  2. I think he's more of a boobs man, Stu.

    And it might make the colour of that awareness surfboard a bit complicated...
