Welcome to this special episode where we dive into the incredible journey of Oceanside resident and former Orange County pro surfer/aerialist, Josh Sleigh @sleigh_josh. Josh's life is nothing short of extraordinary, and today, he shares his remarkable story with us.

In this episode, Josh takes us on a nostalgic ride as he fondly remembers his father, the legendary surfboard shaper, Randy Sleigh. Randy is about to be inducted into the prestigious Boardbuilders Hall of Fame on 9/9/23, and Josh reflects on the profound influence his father had on his life and the world of surfing.

But that's not all—Josh shares a captivating tale about the time his father played a pivotal role in helping surfing icon Simon Anderson invent the revolutionary Thruster surfboard design, a moment that forever changed the landscape of the sport.

Throughout the years, Josh Sleigh has been a true "Jack of all Trades" in the Action Sports world. From his career as a professional surfer to his involvement in the heart-pounding Air Shows, where he pushed the boundaries of aerial stunts, to his impressive 3-time championship win at Surfercross, Josh's passion for action sports knows no bounds.

In addition to his surfing accolades, Josh is the creative genius behind winch-surfing. He's also taken on the formidable challenge of participating in the Harley Hooligan race at the X-Games, proving that his daring spirit knows no limits.

But Josh's story goes beyond the waves and the adrenaline-pumping races. He opens up about his incredible journey as a cancer survivor, offering a glimpse into the resilience and strength that have propelled him to achieve greatness in the face of adversity.
