089 – Randy Rarick

Play

From creating the professional surfing tour to traveling the globe and being the very first surfer at some of the best surf spots in the world, Randy Rarick is one of few people who has contributed back to surfing as much as he has received. In today’s environment where nearly every moment of a professional surfer’s life is documented, curated, monetized, and exploited, Randy’s lived a very different existence. The vast majority of Randy’s surf experience has gone undocumented. He is more deeply woven into competitive surfing, board building, and surf travel than anyone I can think of. That certainly qualifies him to be guest on the show, but what makes it even better is that he’s affable, sharp, his recall is incredible and his knowledge pool is vast, so this is my attempt to unpack just a few layers of Randy Rarick. I hope that you enjoy today’s show.

    Another great podcast! The vast, deep and rich experience pool of Randy Rarick is incredible and David your ability to extract it and guide it with your well thought out questions is great. Podcasts are such a great format. I’m sure some day in the future the Surf Splendor interview audio files will be in the library of SHAC as documents of surf history.
