Drew Kampion sits down with Tom Curren for an interview that explores the master professional surfer’s thoughts on his competitive career, his family life, religion’s role in his life, and the interplay between music and surfing. With three world titles under his belt, Curren reflects on the way that he has managed to earn a living and the opportunities that surfing has allowed him, as well as the aspects of his family life that surfing has inhibited.
