Early big wave surfing pioneer Peter Cole talks about his experiences growing up in the Santa Monica/Malibu surf scene in the 1940s with friends Joe Quigg, Matt Kivlin, Buzzy Trent, and Bob Simmons. Gaining some big wave experience at Steamer Lane while attending Stanford, Peter transferred his acquired skills to riding big Sunset and Waimea during the 1960s.
