051 - Ian Cairns
Ian Cairns won the 1973 Smirnoff Pro, at the time the contest was considered the de factor world championship. I’m convinced in a different time Ian led a large army of men to glorious victory on a loamy battlefield somewhere. He’s intelligent, courageous and speaks truth even when it’s uncomfortable to do so. A professional surfer before there was such a thing.

Over two decades on the elite WCT professional surfing tour. You simply don’t survive that long without consistency, without a level head, and without a fitness regime. Taylor is bright, kind, and -- if you haven’t seen him surf in person-- Taylor is a powerful, controlled, stylish surfer from the Tom Curren vein. Some surfers throw buckets of water, Taylor throws barrels of water.

048 - Chris Mauro
Chris Mauro and I worked together at Surfer magazine more or less from 1997 to 2007. We spent years in the same office space; bantering about, terrorizing the ad dept and each other. The fondest memories for me might be edit meetings in Evan Slater’s or Chris Mauro’s office where they would eventually ask for my opinion and just as quickly dismiss it – rightly so – I was pretty outspoken a little bit ignorant. This will be the second time I’ve had Chris Mauro on the podcast, and the only guest who’s been on twice. Chris is opinionated, articulate, and draws from decades of surf industry experience growing up at Ground Zero in Laguna Beach. The Boardroom Podcast with Chris Mauro ; let us begin.

Barton Lynch very smart. Street smart. He lost his Father at a young age and this forced him into self-determination. But perhaps more importantly, Barton Lynch is self-aware. He acknowledges his emotions. He is emotionally intelligent. He is a world champion surfer and world champion human being.

045 - Jonathan Wayne Freeman
For many of us he’s struck a chord. Jon takes everyday frustrations, everyday cultural absurdities and he tweaks them. I often find myself saying, “Yeah, he gets it, this whole Southern California surfing lifestyle thing, he gets it.” If nothing else, his shtick is relatable. There is a working schmuck, middle-class charm that working class schmucks such as myself identify with. Comedian. Actor. Instagram philos-surfer. He ponders. He advises. He makes fun.He's Jonathan Wayne Freeman. Let us begin. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

041 - Louie Hayward
Some people have an internal fire that burns very hot. A powerful drive. These people often times seem to will situations, without malice or negative impact, into aligning themselves with their desired outcome. They somehow set into motion a train of circumstances that more often than not result in good things for many people. My son is like this. My wife often says that a properly controlled fire is good thing; because if you keep the fire lit, you can use the fire forever. Our guest today has that same fire. He’s a go-getter. He’s driven to succeed in large part because of the journey -- not just the outcome. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
