June 7, 2021 — Bob Foulke is on a mission. His vision is to give surfers a more dynamic fin system. A fin system that is dynamic and static. It provides a loose free flowing liveliness. But also but also drive and power.

May 12, 2021 — Jon Pyzel

 Jon Pyzel is a classical craftsman figure in that he started out in ding repair surrounded by older, smarter craftsmen, and he soaked it up. Now Pyzel is one of the top shapers in the industry.

 

April 26, 2021 Graham Smith

Many know Graham Smith as the father of WCT campaigner Jordy Smith. That was my connection to Graham. What I didn’t know about was his lifelong passion for building surfboards, a passion that has taken him all around the world.

 

April 13, 2021 Sean Young

April 13, 2021 — In my opinion, as a relative outsiders looking in, Wavegarden seems to be one of the fastest moving wave pool companies in the space, and like all the players, the Wave Garden team is designing towards the future — as if it were today.

I met this weeks guest, Sean Young of Wave Garden, five or six years ago in Orlando Florida while I was moderating talks for the surf park industry.

March 30, 2021 Peter Townend

The WSL continues it’s abbreviated 2021 season with the Australian leg kicking off at Newcastle. And also for certain is that 45 years years ago, Peter Townend was the very first IPS world Champion. PT, a great bloke with an incredible ability to recount surfing history and put it into perspective in relation to today’s world tour.

March 15, 2021 Joe Turpel

Everyone knows somebody like Joe Turpel: sincere, kind-hearted, a listener; the type of person that exudes optimism; the type of person that turns lemons into lemonade. The type of person that makes you feel important.

March 8, 2021 Keane Weber Hayes

At the age of 13, in early October of 2018, on opening day of Lobster season, the unthinkable (or always thought about) happened, Keane Webre-Hayes was attacked by a Great White Shark at Beacons, a surf spot and beach in Leucadia California. This is his story.

Feb 25th, 2021 -Ian Cairns

 Ian Cairns won the 1973 Smirnoff Pro, at the time the contest was considered the de factor world championship. I’m convinced in a different time Ian led a large army of men to glorious victory on a loamy battlefield somewhere. He’s intelligent, courageous and speaks truth even when it’s uncomfortable to do so. A professional surfer before there was such a thing.

Feb 11th, 2021 - Devon Howard
Devon Howard and I have been friends for close to three decades ; I’ve surfed with him, shared waves, shared laughs, ideas about surfboard design, we’ve also shared personal stuff about our families and about the challenges of surfing. And in this podcast we touch on a lot of these points of interest and much more.
November 10, 2020 – Taylor Knox
Taylor Knox – over two decades on the elite WCT professional surfing tour. You simply don’t survive that long without consistency, without a level head, and without a fitness regime.

Taylor is bright, kind, and — if you haven’t seen him surf in person– Taylor is a powerful, controlled, stylish surfer from the Tom Curren vein. Some surfers throw buckets of water, Taylor throws barrels of water.

October 26, 2020 – Chris Mauro

Chris and I worked together at Surfer Magazine more or less from 19917 to 2007. We spent years in the same office space bantering about, terrorizing the ad department and each other.The fondest memories for me might be edit meetings in Evan Slater’s or Chris Mauro’s office where they would eventually ask for my opinion and just as quickly dismiss it – rightly so – I was pretty outspoken a little bit ignorant.

This will be the second time I’ve had Chris Mauro on the podcast, and the only guest who’s been on twice.

Chris is opinionated, articulate, and draws from decades of surf industry experience growing up at Ground Zero in Laguna Beach.

October 16, 2020 — Barton Lynch

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE, TO HAVE SELF AWARENESS, SELF CONTROL, TO BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND, ACKNOWLEDGE AND THEN MANAGE ONES OWN EMOTIONS IS A POWERFUL TRAIT. IT ALSO ASKS FOR SENSE OF HUMILITY. FOR MANY OF US, MYSELF INCLUDED, TO ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR OWN FAULTS IS TO WRITHE IN SELF PITY. EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE TELLS US TO ACKNOWLEDGE SHORTCOMINGS IN THE SPIRIT OF GROWTH.
Emotional intelligent individuals are generally happy, stable, serene and lead a purpose driven life.

In sport, especially individual sport, Emotional intelligence is often what separates world champions from the really gifted.

Barton Lynch spent 15 years on the ASP tour raked up 17 WCT victories.

Culminated in 1988 Hawaiian season at Pipeline, surfing the perfect tubes of Hawaii’s barreling reef, to take out the 1988 Billabong Pro and the ASP World Title.

In conversation, as you will hear, Barton Lynch is every bit the magnanimous individual in one on one conversation as he is with his broadcasting cap on. That’s really no surprise.

Barton Lynch is very smart. Street smart. He lost his Father at a young age and this forced him into self-determination.

But perhaps more importantly, Barton Lynch is self-aware. He acknowledges his emotions. He is emotionally intelligent. He is a world champion surfer and world champion human being.
