Brad Gerlach has many interesting faces. Many phases. And just as many infamous and iconic moments cemented into surf history. He’s been a wild child. A rebel. A fashion icon. A bad boy. A good boy. A fitness guru. A competitive surf coach. Style master. He has a 6-minute slow motion part in Josh Pomer’s TK3 that is actually warranted. He’s a big wave surfer, and was for a long time credited with towing into the biggest wave in the world at the time at Todos. You’ll run into him now in Venice. Bali. Paris. Or Tokyo. Who can say where next.
We recently caught up with him, perused his museum of interesting surfboards and caught up with one of the more interesting paths carved in this strange world of surfing in this all new Afternoon Interview, presented by Banks.
