Life Lessons with Ian Walsh and a Weatherman


Did you know the O’Neill and Lost team rider Ian Walsh grew up in Maui “watching the massive surf breaks.” Whoa geez golly. You would know this, along with some swell safety tips for when you find yourself swimming in a hurricane and riveting revelations on why hurricanes are named after men, if you woke up with Al Roker the other day. Watch Ian Walsh really get down to the nitty gritty on swimming straight into shore when you’re in a rip current, how to handle a 6′ + board under hot stage lights, and his thoughts on how to name hurricanes. My only question left unanswered is, “when do we get to see Ian Walsh ‘Hang Ten’”? I must have missed that part when I left to go buy some Honey Bunches of Oat. Shoots.
It could be the reggae-lounge music in the background, but something about this clip just makes me smile. Then get that “I smell burnt toast” face. Then smile.
