Jack Freestone is primed and ready for his maiden year on the World Tour. While there are definitely nerves that come with beginning the year as a Rookie, there are a few things that Jack has on his side.
First, Jack's no stranger to the Gold Coast having been born and bred in on it's shores. Secondly, a surfer is only as good as his own equipment(well... sorta), and Jack has master craftsman Darren Handley aka DHD in his corner. Darren shapes some of the finest boards on the planet.
This batch that Surfline profiled here is specifically geared for the first event on tour, Snapper. We wish Jack and fellow tour Rookie Ryan Callinan good luck as well as Italo, Taj and Parko as the year gets ready to kick off.
