ASB MAGAZINE: Globe welcomed Jai Glindeman to the Globe Surf Team. After taking out Stab Magazine’s 2020 ‘Best Junior’, Jai has been busy filming for Globe and is the latest addition to their team following the signing of Shaun Manners earlier this year.
The release of breakout surf video Pup in late 2019 cemented Jai’s status as one of the most exciting young surfers in the Australian scene. Follow-up performances in June 2020’s COVID At Home and then in Stab Magazine’s Electric Acid Micro dose: Jai Glindeman have taken the hype around Jai to new levels.
Globe Surf Team Manager Beren Hall said: “You just don’t see kids his age surf with that much style – especially in heavy waves like Cloudbreak. Filming for Pup was actually the first time Jai had surfed big barreling lefts – which honestly blew my mind.”
Even with the difficulties the pandemic has presented, Jai has continued to film and make the surf-world take notice – earning comparisons to Joel Parkinson and Andy Irons. Jai is currently filming with Beren Hall, Dan Scott and close mate and main lensmen Georde Grigor at his hometown breaks around Lennox Head, New South Wales.
