153 – Mark Healey

Play

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!

JOEL’S FINAL YEAR ON TOUR

During the Occast with Bruce Irons, Occy accidentally mentions that 2017 will be Joel’s final year on Tour.

Apparently, Kelly’s also stated that it’s his last year on Tour, but I can’t find this quote nor the original source. Let’s call it a credible rumor until further notice.

From the SF Chronicle, “The bankruptcy filing comes after costly legal trouble for Cartel Management. Red Bull Media House North America Inc. filed a lawsuit against Cartel and Titans of Mavericks in the Superior Court of Los Angeles on Friday, just days before the bankruptcy action. Red Bull Media House sought an unspecified amount in damages after paying Titans of Mavericks $400,000 for the rights to webcast this year’s competition — which hasn’t happened yet — then never receiving a refund after Cartel abruptly terminated the contract. After receiving Cartel’s purported termination letter, searching for a rationale for Cartel’s erratic behavior, Plaintiff found that Cartel is beset by financial and legal difficulties,” the suit states. At the end of October, a jury in the Central District of California found Cartel and Marisa Miller, an international supermodel and wife of Guess, were liable to pay $1 million after breaching a contract with another company, Segler Holdings LLC.”
