Interview – Ben Player


Ben Player Interview

INTERVIEW done on the 8th of March 2005 – “Last Questions” with Ben Player

BEN PLAYER not only works at Movement Mag but he’s everywhere : he’s in every single Mag and video, he competes on the world tour and makes it to the top 10 if not the top 5 of the RIPTIDE peer poll every year for the past five years (#6 this year). Ben’s surfing is creative and as stylish as it gets, he’s impressive in the water and super cool out of the water. He was probly out of the water and at home in Oz the other day when i asked Ben if he was ok to be interviewed for coz he said yes pretty quickly and answered his emails for a couple days. We got lucky… Anyway, both me and Ben thought that a real interview is kinda boring and lacks of spontaneity and authenticity so we agreed on the ‘Last Words’ interview format (which i must admit i borrowed to TransworldSURF Mag). I sent Ben the 30 or so quick questions and got my answers the next day. That was last week, we cant be more fresh than this on playbord ! So here are Ben’s last words and facts :
