San Diego band of surfers “Switchfoot” has sold millions of albums and won a Grammy over the past 20 years. I chatted with them on the eve of the release of their 11th album to discuss Gabriel Medina’s Pipe Master’s domination, prioritizing swell with work and family life, shaping surfboards, and how to honor one’s moral code while subject to the vice synonymous with Rock n’ Roll. Enjoy!
