COMRADE JARED MELL GOES BIG IN BALI


Logs and laughs abound at this year's 9ft & Single Comp...

Hot off a trip to Japan for the Green Room Festival, Jared Mell stepped off a plane in Bali and hopped straight into a pair of trunks to compete at the recent Deus 9ft & Single Comp presented by Swell.

With the airplane cocktails still swirling around in his system, he was chosen as this year's MC for the event where he donned his alter ego, John Johnson, to ensure the contest was properly moderated with nothing but good vibes.

Although he was the unofficial host of the contest, it quickly became certain that Mell was there to compete, and that he did.

For the main event, the 9ft & Single, Mell placed 4th behind Jye Barnes, Josh Constable and Harrison Roach who took the win. Jared then went on to place 2nd behind Roach again in the Under 9ft & Single event.
