In part 1 of 2, Mickey unpacks his adolescence growing up in Malibu with shaping pioneers Joe Quigg and Matt Kivlin. He then tells us about the very first time he saw Phil Edwards and how Mickey Dora helped define his own personal code of ethics. And sursprisingly, Mickey also shares his insight into modern surfing, Kelly Slater, John John Florence, Gabriel Medina, and the battle for the 2014 world title.
The basis of this conversation was Mickey’s book, No Bad Waves, which is available for purchase HERE.
