Over the course of our conversation here shares tips and insights on:

  • Getting waves at Lower Trestles on a crowded summer day
  • Surfing in booties without losing your cool
  • Keeping fit, flexible and injury-free well into your 40s
  • Wave pools and their influence on the future proliferation of the sport and lifestyle of surfing
  • Underground and up-and-coming rippers
  • Surfboard design and the benefits of length vs. width
  • How to make friends, influence people and get more waves

We joke about it during the episode, but in all seriousness Cordell is a really busy guy and we really appreciate him taking the time to be a guest on our show.
