Since we're talking about surfing why don't you give us your thoughts about surfing.
Surfing...Surfing...where do I start?
How about just at the beginning?
Ok, well, uh...so as soon as there was the first wave, right?There was the first surfer. All they needed was like uh, um, something like a piece of driftwood, block of ice, or something like that and then they were off. And they were hooked man. They were hooked. Up 'til recent times you had your old dudes, you know, you're hang 6 cats, these old guys used to lay down with these huge, humongous boards. These guys were the pioneers, but nobody saw what surfing could really be. Until Big Z did it.
Could you tell us who Big Z was?
Who was Big Z?
You're asking the right guy, you got that part... Big Z is everything, Big Z is surfing and I mean he's...they invented the ocean for him. He lived so hard, because he wasn't afraid to live he wasn't afraid to die. He came to Antartica when I was just a kid. Man, he just [sighs] he was the biggest thing that ever happened here. Suddenly there he was just floating over the water, just hovering, you know, like weightless. Could have walked up anyone and he walks right up to me. He gives me this awesome, one of a kind, Big Z necklace and then he tells me you know kid, never give up, to find a way, because that's what winners do. He was the greatest. Every one looked up to him, respected him, loved him. And, one day...one day, I'm going to be just like him. I've been surfing ever since I can remember. it's hard to imagine any part of my life when I wasn't surfing. I want to get out of here, you know, and this is my ticket out. I'm really good man, I'm the best on the island. I know it sounds cocky saying that but I am...like the best. Yeah, I was born and raised here in Shiverpool lived here my whole life. This is where the sort the fish it's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of.
