Here comes the first episode of O’Neill’s THE O’RIGINALS series – Billy Bain. If you’re not acquainted with Billy, you should know that the man is a powerful surfer from the Northern Beaches of Sydney who grew up doing junior comps, making a name for himself burying rail while his contemporaries were taking to the air. These days, Billy has moved to the inner-city to chase his dreams of becoming an artist, using sloppy suburban weekend surfs as a cleansing respite from the gritty city grind.

Give it a watch, ’cause these THE O’RIGINALS are a wonderful couple of mini-docos focussing on young surfers doing things their own way, while examining the influence surfing has had on their lives. Episode 2’ll be out this time next week.
