||Ask any surfer and they'll tell you that they have a two-way relationship with the sport. Surfing is something that we are inspired to do, and something that inspires us to pursue other passions in our lives.
In the 1960s, Rick Griffin began his work as a surf cartoonist before moving on to a mysterious, conflicted career in art.
At the same time, Australian Nat Young was establishing himself as one of the world's best surfers, a legacy that he would pass along to his son, modern-era longboarder Beau Young.
Also in Australia, Jye Byrnes, a surfer from a working-class background, established a love for sport on the soccer field, but soon realized that surfing was his only true passion.
In this episode of Long Board TV, we take a look at these multi-faceted surfers, and the elements that inspired passions.
