Episode 13 is hosted on location at the Red Bull Unfastened strapless contest that took place on the Italian island of Sardinia in April.
Also in this episode: we sent freestyler Lewis Crathern to the Course Racing World Championships in China last November to give us an alternative angle on racing. In a brilliant undercover-style report, Lewis reveals why he now thinks racing rocks! We drop in on Airush at their new design HQ in Cape Town before Bas Koole returns with part two of his technique series, this episode with tips on the boosted front roll. In Mystic Moments we profile the highest performing male in the 2014 PKRA freestyle championship, Christophe Tack, we also announce the winner of the Slingshot Vision board and launch the North Wam surfboard comp. Finally, we round the show out with an awesome action compilation, featuring the riders invited to the Red Bull Unfastened event, with some of their best recent footage from the event and elsewhere on their travels.
