The show follows me working to get into the Mavericks Big Wave Surfing Competition with regularly released episodes every Saturday at 10 a.m. The series is much more than just training and surfing: it's everything from exploring new avenues of activism and meeting up with figures like Dr. J Nichols (author of Blue Mind) to going into the psychology of big wave surfing with guys like Mark Healey.
