MOOSE ON THE LOOSE
Marti Paradisis is one of the biggest names in big wave surfing around the globe. A subjective opinion perhaps, however when you have the awards, the footage, the photos and at times the injuries to prove it - there’s really no case for argument. Growing up on the southern coastline of Tasmania, Australia, his local break consisted of mainly small mushy breaks, sheltered from the big swells that he is known so well for charging. This has been his life M.O in the never-ending search for barreling giants and deep-sea monsters, like Pedra Branca (Tas). It was that very 30ft wave that we all watched him drop into not that long ago, that earned him “Biggest Wave of the Year” at the Australian Oakley Big Wave Awards in 2013. A simple “Marti Para” youtube search will leave you a little wide eyed and perhaps make you question the sanity of some of these Big Wave guys. Good viewing is almost always guaranteed. Marti rides the Golden Gun, The Shred Sled King, custom Haydenshapes “Tom Carroll” tow boards and the Hypto Krypto.
