JOE ENGEL [3min]

Smokin' Joe Engel, along with Tom Carroll and Cheyne Horan, was the hottest young Aussie prospect of the late 1970s. Short, raw, and powerful, Joe went on to win the Rip Curl Bells event in 1983, but never really found his groove on tour. Engel died in 2006, but remains a beloved figure in Aussie surf history.
