Show Notes

Welcome to the QuiverCast where we're hanging out with none other than big-wave world champion Jamie Sterling @jamie.sterling. In today's episode, we catch the wave of Jamie's incredible journey through the world of surfing, from his teenage years to becoming a force to be reckoned with in the big-wave scene.

Jamie takes us back to his roots, sharing how his love for big waves set him on a unique path. While he dipped his toes into small-wave competitions with the HSA, Jamie quickly realized that his true calling was where the waves reached monumental heights. Join us as he recounts the highs and lows of his career, reflecting on the aspirations that fueled his journey.

In a candid moment, Jamie opens up about the nuances of surfing backside, revealing the ease he finds in not having to look the wave in the eye. He emphasizes the importance of relying on training, conditioning, and knowledge, cautioning against the deceptive security that comes with inflation vests, particularly when tackling the colossal waves.

As the conversation unfolds, Jamie shares his perspective on the shifting dynamics within the surfing community. Big-wave surfing, he believes, holds a unique appeal, especially for Middle America. However, Jamie contends that the World Surf League (WSL) is wary of this growing allure, fearing it may overshadow high-performance surfing events.
