We kicked off Surf Ninjas last week by introducing you to Cape ripper Chris Molde. This week we’re taking you across the country to Durban’s balmy bowls to meet with one of its many underground shredders. Chris Frolich has started to turn heads with his tweaked out airs and vicious gouges in the Town bowls, so between sessions we got the goofyfoot to answer a couple quickfire questions. Meet Chris…
