#8.) SURF ­ A sport as cool as riding a wave is the focus of this XC episode featuring a surf trip to the notorious island of Todos Santos off Ensenada Mexico and an exclusive interview with surf legend Gerry Lopez at his home in Maui Hawaii.


Hosts Jason Lazo and Roslyn Bradle open the show from the beach in Santa Monica Ca where Jason talks about the south of the border shoot taken with a group of San Diego surfers. Follow them as they cross the border and head for Ensenada Mexico overcoming challenges such as a boat breakdown 10 miles off the coast. See how they eventually reach and ride the open ocean monster waves at a break called Killers!

Also on this show we go to exotic Hawaii to the island of Maui to visit and talk with Pipeline surf legend Gerry Lopez who invited our cameras into his home and onto his surfboard! Yes we attached a H20 cam to his board for some fun shots of the master carving some turns at HoOkipa beach park. See these exclusive shots and hear what Gerry has to say about the early days of Pipeline and why he missed the 1st Pipeline Masters surf event. Included are clips of fellow surfer Corky Carroll in Huntington Beach Ca with his side of the story! Who do you believe? While at his house we asked Gerry what kind of surf junk he had stored in his garage and scored big by turning up the original board from the 1978 Warner Bros. cult movie Big Wednesday starring Gerry and actors Jan-Michael Vincent, William Katt and Gary Busey.


See what else the XC cams find in his garage and check the sweet bikini clad native girl swimming in nearby crystal waters. Smooth island music here from the local band Paradyse c/o Outrigger Hotels.


After that itıs back to California where Roslyn opens a segment with The X Guru - Eric Ducharme riding the new SiKK Bike


­ the worlds smallest motorcycle. Pretty SiKK and pretty fun! Jason closes out the show from Todos Santos with a few more big waves along with a promise of the return of B.A.S.E. jumper Ray Murphy to the next show with his own version of SiKK action- jumping the sheer cliffs of Copper Canyon Mexico! Music by Soul Hooligan/Diana King, Sea Lords, Screamin Seamen, Prom Kings and Chron.

 


Respect the Ocean. Mahalo.
