A few months back I blogged about Ellie Jean Coffey and her famous surfing family in Australia.
She read it and reached out to say she was a big Barstool fan and elaborate on her new business venture and some of the challenges she faced being a female on the pro surfing circuit in Australia. There was so much behind it we decided to get on a zoom to discuss with the help of her business partner Nick McCandless.
The talk discussion went great. As you'll see Ellie is really smart and funny, and has a great general outlook on things. She's super chill and was a good time to talk shop with.
Thanks to Ellie and Nick.
p.s.- apologies in advance for my nasally voice and once again plugging Donnie, WSD, and my surfing the Chicago River
