It’s been a decade since Clay Marzo burst onto the scene with his mind-blowing performances in the Young Guns movies. Fellow stars Dane Reynolds and Julian Wilson have enjoyed a fair share of the world’s limelight since then, popping and fizzing against the world’s best, one retiring from competition sooner than we’d like to live the life of a high-paid freesurfer, the other currently competing for a world title. In the meantime, Marzo has quietly gone about doing what he has always done best—ripping the hell out of his home breaks on Maui, getting shacked silly and annihilating the lip with the nose pick tail blast that catalyzed the newest school of high performance progression. Every once in a while, from his laid back life on Maui, Clay drops a short collection of clips on us, a striking reminder that his mind- and spine-bending brand of surfing is still as relevant as it ever was.
