Today’s guest is former pro surfer, surf writer, and boardbuilder, Dave Parmenter. Surfing Magazine once described Parmenter as “the most interesting surfing in the world.” In this conversation we discuss his career path, how easily legacy can be misinterpreted, and we get insight into Dave’s view of the current state of surf culture. Enjoy!

The Encyclopedia of Surfing was helpful in outlining today’s show. View Parmenter’s entry here.
