153 – Mark Healey


This week’s guest is unflinching big-wave surfer, champion spear fisherman, and part time Hollywood stuntman Mark Healey.

He’s a perennial invitee to the Quiksilver in Memory of Eddie Aikau contest at Waimea Bay, and winner of the 2010 Todos Santos Big Wave Event. Healey won the 2009 Billabong XXL Monster Tube Award for getting shacked at a little known Oregon wave known as the Yeti.

In addition to his big wave exploits, in 2008 Healey won the World Cup of Spearfishing in La Paz, Mexico, and he recently launched Healey Water Ops where he facilitates extreme ocean experiences for anyone who wants a world-class experience with the worlds best athletes.

You can find him on Instagram @HealeyWaterOps and at HealeyWaterOps.comI found him to very forthcoming, affable, astute and very spoken. I really enjoyed chatting with him and appreciated his insights into a lot of aspects of professional surfing that Scott and I speculate on regularly. I’m really pleased to be able to bring this episode to you. Enjoy!
