AFTERNOON INTERVIEW: LEE WILSON

AFTERNOON INTERVIEW: LEE WILSON


Episode 046: Growing up in Bali, new sponsorships and the stack of dishes that changed his life
VIDEO: WHAT YOUTH

Lee Wilson has a wild story, background, look, style and accent.  He is half Australian, half Indonesian, and spent a good part of his youth growing up in both. His surfing has always been unparalleled. But its come in hiccups. It was far way in Indonesia. He’d pop up in Julian Wilson videos. Or in double page spreads in mags doing exactly what the top guys were doing, often stickerless, but doing it just as tweaked. Just as high. But then he’d be gone. Or at least it seemed that way.

Lee recently boarded a boat with us in the Mentawais because we’ve long been a major fan of his surfing and him as a good dude. We made him sit down in new sponsor Brixton’s hat and we talked about his lengthy and beautiful journey to the boat. It has been anything but handed to him.
