Season 3 Episode 1 Presented by Futures Fins.Every so often, in certain eras across certain disciplines, an athlete doesn’t just change the way we look at a team — he or she changes the way we look at the sport itself.

Now a self-proclaimed surf-dad (geez, imagine if your pops was Shane Dorian?!) the big-wave GOAT talks with Jamie Mitchell at length in episode one of Season 3 of the Late Drop.

SHANE DORIAN | NEVER LOSE THE LOVE

DADSTRONG

Today I am so stoked to welcome Shane Dorian on the Dad Strong Podcast! Shane is from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii and spent 11 years touring on the ASP World Championship Tour as a professional surfer, ending up as high as 4th in the world in 2000. After retiring from the then WCT, Shane started to concentrate on big wave surfing and he took the top prize at the 2008 Global Big Wave Awards in California. In 2011 Dorian was awarded "Ride of the Year" by the World Surf League for paddling into a giant Peahi "Jaws" barrel, estimated to be 57 feet tall by the World Surf League, and biggest wave ever paddled into at that time. He is married and has two children, a 13-year-old son, who is already a professional surfer and a 10-year-old daughter who also loves the ocean. This is another great conversation and we touched on so many interesting aspects of life, from brain training to bow hunting and the lessons we can learn from the hunt, and naturally surfing. Shane shares about his upbringing on the Big Island of Hawaii and the adversity he had to navigate to find the path that led him to become one of the best surfers on the planet. Most importantly we talk about parenting and how important it is to help our kids to focus on loving what they do and not to let competition and drive contribute to losing that love and the thrill of the process. Shane also talks about how becoming a dad was a major change from a very selfish mindset to one where he learned to put his family first and became a better man, husband and father. I am so stoked to be bringing you this show and encourage you to listen right to the end as there is much gold to be found. And now over to my conversation with Shane.
