    I wanted to say the story on Clay Marzo was a well told one. I have to opportunity to work with some wonderful people who happen to have characteristics similar to Mr. Marzo. With those opportunities I can only imagine how amazing Clay is and how many eyes he is opening. It appears he has a gift of excellent surfer and he is doing it on his terms. For those people who have exit from his life. It is too bad, because they are really missing out on an amazing person. Although I am not much of a surfer. All I can say CLAY… SURFER ON!!!

    Marzo is a uniquely gifted surfer. I hope the media doesn’t over-due the focus on his personality challenges, because he could wreak havoc on the WTC once he adjusts to the “scene”. He is one of the most exciting surfers out there, and every bit as talented as Dane Reynolds and Jordy Smith. Don’t marginalize him… Promote him equally.
