Owen's put in some of the best backhand performances of the last decade out at J-Bay, and with his form he's in this year, O's ready to push it to the next level again. After taking out the Quik Pro Snapper riding a new Monsta 6 at the start of the season, the extra size at both Margaret River and Bells had Owen riding Forget Me Nots for the majority of the events, with a few big results along the way.
Even in Brazil, Saquarema's clean, punchy beachbreaks allowed O to keep riding his favourite FMN, although in his shortboard size (6'3") - not the step ups we saw through the back half of Australia's CT leg. For South Africa, he'll be packing a range of Monsta 6s and Forget Me Nots from earlier in the season, plus these brand new FMNs with a bit of added colour. Board breakdowns, below (he's 6'3" / 76kg):
