In his younger years, Julian Wilson was on the cover of teen dream magazines. Now he's on the cover of the world's best surfing magazines. And it ain't a surprise. Jules grew up in a family of surfers on the Sunshine Coast and, ever since he can remember, he's ridden waves, so it should come as no shock that he quickly scooped national titles in both longboarding and shortboarding.
It was the latter that he was more attracted to, honing it to a point where victories at Pro Juniors were frequent and a 2006 ISA World Junior title was an easy step. In 2007 he invented his own move – yes, you read that right – called the Sushi Roll, which was a mixture between a backside rodeo and a superman. As hard as it sounds.
Jules is the youngest-ever winner of the Surfer Poll award for Best Performance of the Year, which he clocked for his part in Quiksilver’s Young Guns III. 2010 saw Julian release his own signature film, Scratching the Surface, which was the result of a year's hiatus from competing.
Once that was done, he could get serious about competition, and he did just that, qualifying within a year. After a coupla years adjustment time on the tour, Jules won the 2012 US Open, the Breaka Burleigh Pro and the Rip Curl Pro, Portugal. What will 2013 bring?Read more
