    Surfer & Scientist Cliff Kapono Dives into Current MegaLab Project on World-Wide Reef Mapping

    In this episode, Dr. Cliff Kapono shares his dual passion for surfing and science. We dive into his current project at MegaLab - a non-profit ocean research facility in Hilo, Hawaii - which implements modern technology to map our world’s reef systems. The project's goal is to have over 1 million reefs documented by 2030 and train an army of citizen scientists to help.  As he says in this deep dive into reef mapping, “We have more information and technology working on the mapping of the surface of Mars than we do our own ocean floors.”

    Will Skudin Talks Story about Surfing Mavericks the Day it Went Down in History (again) as the Biggest Day in Decades.

    New York big wave surfer Will Skudin recaptures the mayhem of tow surfing into a recent massive swell at Mavericks in this week’s episode of On Water.

Will’s resilient attitude about getting back on the ski to whip his partner - Nic VanRupp - into additional waves that day is motivational. Skudin’s passion for surfing “from 2-foot faces at Maria’s to 60-foot faces at Maverick’s” is on full display in this week’s podcast. What’s next for Will Skudin? Listen UP to find out.
