We got the chance to meet Paul through a small phone screen (our phone) he was continuously sharing pics of our Ambassador Dodge, we were quite impressed with his technique and eye. We were just so surprised to scroll down his feed and see his improvement in less then a year — This fine gent is packed with willingness to not put up with mediocre "stuff", but give it his last breath.
Get to meet Paul.
What's your FLKLR?
Feeling the power and movement of the ocean whether surfing or shooting, there is no greater feeling then that 5am swim out with my housing in hand. It can be the harsh 5 Degree North Atlantic Ocean of England or the 29 degree spa like water of the Mentawais. I still feel the same thrill and emotion every day I'm blessed to spend time in mother natures creation... The Big Blue — I am so excited to be a part of such an amazing team and see what corners of the world we can explore together.
Who's style do you admire the most?
Montgomery “Buttons” Kaluhiokalani.
Nobody will ever be able to replicate his style, ther are so many copy cat surfers out there but buttons will always be an original, he was so unpredictable. The way he pivots on single fins with such flow and goes switch foot is un explainable. R.I.P Buttons
What inspires you?
Anyone who has the ability to follow a dream and stick with it no matter what blockades get in the way, people always have ambitions but the ones that pursue these whether it succeeds or fails are already winners in my eyes.
No sunscreen or Underwear?
No underwear for sure! Duh.
