Past Present Perfect: Sunny Garcia & Ezekiel Lau Part 1: Surfing in Hawaii

Video: Troy Eckert

Sunny Garcia is part of a near mythological lineage of Hawaiian surfers. Hawaii and it’s surfers have been a part of every single shift in progression, surfboards, big waves, airs, competition and freesurfing. It’s one of the most important aspects of our history. And there have been a lot of surfers who’ve participated in those historic runs, but perhaps none more persistently than Sunny Garcia.
