A suburb roughly 25 kilometres north of Sydney’s downtown is where Chris Davidson completed his training. In the 1990s, when he was regarded as “one of the most talented young guys in the world,” the Rip Curl talent team signed him and he began to improve his surfing there.
His participation in the 1996 Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach in Victoria, Australia, using a wildcard helped him stand out. He defeated Kelly Slater, the three-time world champion at the time (he would go on to win the fourth that year), at the age of just 19 and instantly became the sensation of the competition.
