With 10,000 miles between us, sometimes the audio is not perfect, and this is one of those occasions. However, the interview is epic, and Greg is super insightful about the past, present, and future of surfing. Today we chat with South African surfer, former pro surfer, and ISA World Master Champ, Greg Emslie @greg_bigfoot_emslie. At a young age, Greg and his brothers pursued surfing, venturing into the wild and wide-open waters of East London, South Africa. As he progressed in his surfing career, he decided to venture into professional surfing, finding himself competing against his heroes. We discussed the importance of boards and how, when traveling to different surf breaks, he would try the local shapers' boards because local knowledge is everything. While on the dream tour, he had a great time surfing some of the gnarliest waves with much success.

Today, Greg still surfs all the time, and you can find him hunting new waves around South Africa with his family. He also discusses what a great value and adventurous time it is to come visit South Africa. And don't miss the story of the first time a jet ski was used in a pro surfing heat! Despite the audio challenges, this episode offers a deep dive into Greg's journey and his insights on surfing's evolution, making it a must-listen for any surfing enthusiast.
