Julian Wilson Going Big

The term Julian Wilson going big may not be an uncommon term to the surf mags these days. Usually they are talking about his Sushi Roll airs or some other aerial feat he’s up to, not his abilities on a longboard. I just happened across this footage of him competing in a longboard contest at First Point, Noosa Heads. In an interview with him I once read that he has longboard roots from surfing those legendary logger preferred rights. I could see Thomas Campbell having a Julian Wilson section in one of his surf vids after watching this.

Noosa Heads holds a dear place in my heart. I lived there for two years and helped a bit at the local high school. I think Julian was attending that school when I was there. I actually painted a double-decker bus that was a mobile teen hang-out. That was probably 10 years ago now. Being a big critic of my own work, I would do a much better job on it these days.
