There are few things more satisfying in life than knowing you’re on a roll. Surfer Magazine caught up with Dusty Payne at the Volcom house on the North Shore. Watch the interview on Surfer Magazine HERE.
Perched on his third-floor balcony, watching the waves at Pipeline, he grinned through a thick, vaguely Amish-looking beard. He admitted that it probably wasn’t his best look, but he didn’t dare shave it off, not after it accompanied him to the podium at both Haleiwa and Sunset. He surprised the surf world by coming out of the deepest recesses of the ‘QS to qualify for this year’s World Tour, and is now back in action with a 13th place finish at Snapper, looking forward to Bells. To chalk up his resurgence as a lucky streak, though, would be wrong. Payne has changed more than just his grooming standards over the last year.
