Mark Healey

It’s hard to keep up with big-wave surfer Mark Healey. On any given day, he’ll be chasing ocean swell around the world in search of 40-, 50-, or 60-foot breaks, free diving through the reefs near his home on the North Shore of Oahu, or jumping out of planes to learn about cloud formations.

This is a dude who’s in touch with his own fears, and pushes his physical and mental limitations in ways that make your everyday thrill seeker look about as badass as Kenny Powers on a boogie board.

Mark is what Hawaiians call a true waterman, whose knowledge of the elements around him focus his energies on coming to grips with the ineffable fact that the ocean is something to be respected and feared. And it’s also something to be treasured.
