INTERVIEW: Matt Warshaw

Matt mentioned his early friendship with Jay Adams, and his time on the Zephyr Surf Team. If you want to see more about the Zephyr Team, check out the great documentary, Dogtown and the Z-Boys.
Matt continued to surf professionally into the 1980's, rising to 43rd in the world before moving into surf journalism.
We checked on Amazon, and Bill is still listed as a contributor to Matt's Encyclopedia of Surfing, but behind Matt.
When Matt talks about making a movie of surfers smoking, this clip of John Peck was the starting point. You can watch his final edit on the EoS blog.
The main reason for this interview is that Matt and the EoS needs your help. Due to a lack of subscribers they need to raise $30,000 by the end of December. If you want to help the Encyclopedia of Surf project, you can Donate Here or Subscribe Here for $3 a month.
