Martin Potter saw the ocean for the first time when he was 9, and spent the next six years surfing the beaches of Durban, South Africa. By age 15, Potter was blowing doors off at the Gunston 500, and eight years after that he won the world title by the biggest margin in pro surfing history. Engage in his wild ride of 14 years on tour, recollections of childhood, and life as it is today.
