Dave Wassel is a friend who’s one of the best watermen in the world, and also one of the funniest guys on the beach. He has been a lifeguard at Pipeline, a Tavarua Boatman, and a professional big wave surfer for years. I’ve watched him paddle into some of the hugest waves on the planet and he always comes up smiling. Wassel is an inspiration.
Here’s a quick interview he did with Transworld Surf about Pipeline.
Wassel’s XXL paddle nomination this year.
