Interview – Glen Thurston

SPONGERCITY INTERVIEW with Glen”PENCE”THURSTON – INTERVIEW done by Dave L. in Dec 2006 – 30 Last Words Glen Thurston Interview

With the recent release of their new “the ROAD” DVD, Glen and his buddies Michael Novy, Brendon Newton, Harry Dixon, Grizzla, Ryan Mattic and Adam Benwell got themselves a ticket to stardom. Some were more considered as rookies whereas others were already well-known by the media. After watching “the ROAD” (filmed by Glen’s older Brother Bryce Thurston) you’ll understand that none of those young fellas are ‘rookies’ anymore. They all put their lifes on the line to score some of the best waves & slabs Oz has to offer and it seems that they all came back from “the ROAD” experience stronger and more talented than ever. Glen’s section in “the ROAD” is a proof of how good and driven those guys are.
