“Surfing to some humans on this planet is absolutely neccesary, vital, important, an analogy for everything else.” Frank Paine

Absolutely delightful short documentary film featuring Frank Paine who has been surfing the waters off southern California for the last  58 years.  The 73-year-old has solidified himself as a local legend and is brimming with chill wisdom that we can all make use of on and off the water. Reminds me a bit of The Stranger from The Big Lebowski (google that and tell me I’m wrong):

 “His unforgettable mustache and magnetic spirit are what most first notice, but Frank’s deeper layers expose a depth that might answer some questions that us surfers continually ask ourselves. Surfing, which, for some, becomes lost in isolation, is made whole again with Frank — welcoming, inspiring, kind and committed, with an unwavering passion centered on and springing from Hermosa Beach’s beloved shores.”
