"These are the people that Jack O'Neill developed the brand for way back at inception."

THE O’RIGINALS series from O’Neill is back! Three mini-docos on young surfers doing things their own way, examining the influence surfing has had on their lives. The second ep of the three new O’RIGINALS introduces us to Reef Doig.

Reef Doig’s story is unique, but also quintessentially one of growing up surfing in our corner of the world. The son of hard charging Cronulla legend Geoff Doig, Reef was brought up in Bali – a fantasy life for most of us, but one that also had its negatives for a grommet hell bent on becoming a full time professional surfer. At 17, he moved to Australia to finish high school and give the traditional path to surfing stardom a crack. His perspective on how that surfing journey played out is fascinating, and just one more example of how an obsession with riding waves, first and foremost, keeps one true to themself. Get around it!
