How good are numbers? Seven… that’s a good one. Three-hundred-and-12…. that’s good also. There are heaps of them. And Julian Wilson is great too. He’s easily our favourite ever surfer named Julian. So we thought we'd combine the two great things and break down the numbers that make-up the surfer that is Julian Wilson.
