Roamers: Ian Walsh
Maui native Ian Walsh has been tackling massive waves around the world since he was a teenager and his longevity and experience in the water shines through, whether he’s in an elite contest, performing for the cameras, or purely riding for himself. He’s one of the most passionate and dedicated big-wave surfers, and he’s willing to go to the ends of the Earth to find the perfect wave. In November 2017, Ian won the Big Wave Tour Pe’ahi Challenge. His story was featured in the Red Bull documentary Distance Between Dreams.
