Clay Marzo Is the Hero Surfing Needs, Not the One it Deserves

I cannot figure out for the life of my why Clay Marzo doesn’t have a sponsor. People will say “character issues” or whatever they believe makes him tough to market, but let’s be real — this guy’s talent on a board makes a significant portion of the surfing industry’s poster-boys look horrifically stiff, elementary and/or bogus (save JJF + a few others). Watch any clip of his in the past year. Watch any clip period. Skateboarding’s been successfully marketing thee gnarliest of dudes since forever.

Someone pick this guy up so we can get a full-length feature of rides like his ender wave in the insane clip below.
