Without a main sponsor, Lee Wilson has taken to washing dishes back in Australia, and surely it’s not due to his lack of surfing ability (Oh my! That backside no-handed tube at 1:15!). In an act of love, Wilson’s wife purchased him a flight to Bali so he could compete in the 2015 Rip Curl Padang Cup, which unfortunately did not run. Instead, he spent his time putting it all on the line for the “Sponsor Me” tape above that you are probably gawking over. So if you’re watching this, Big Company With Deep Pockets, please put a sticker on this guy’s nose so we can see more of him.
