Molokai 2011 – Gerry Lopez interview

Gerry Lopez needs no introduction.  If anyone can be called “Zen Waterman”, it’s him.  We are just humble students of the master.  I was lucky enough to spend some time with Gerry on the evening before the Molokai to Oahu race.
In this interview , Gerry talks about Standup paddling, shaping, the molokai race, yoga, focus, a bad wipeout at Pipeline with out of body experience and the benefits of getting into the ocean.  This is great stuff, enjoy. 

I was lucky enough to have a great conversation with Gerry Lopez the night before the Molokai race. Gerry is a true Zen Waterman and shares some words of wisdom. I know it’s long but it really is great stuff, so take the time to listen and let it all sink in.  I put together this 15 minute video about my experience and a recap of the 2011 Molokai to Oahu Paddleboard race.
There are some short excerpts of the three interviews I taped the evening before the race, to watch the full interviews, click on the links.  Featuring: Brian Szymanski, Jeff Denholm, and Gerry Lopez.
