Venice Beach’s underground surf royalty

Quick: name the best surfer to ever come out of Venice Beach, California. If you said, “Venice has never produced good surfers,” you’re wrong. Despite having, uh, variable, wave conditions, Venice’s unique culture makes it a cradle for creative talent, whether in surfing, skating, or various types of art.

In this episode, we get to know legendary surfer Rick Massie and learn about what it’s like to take on the WQS without sponsors. We also check in with the next generation in the form of up and coming grom, Noah Hill. Venice might not be known for its waves, but it’s still an amazing place to be a surfer.
