By on February 27, 2015 in Surfing with 0 Comments

Meet Alex Martins – a Brazilian transplant who devotes everything he has to surfing Mavericks. He doesn’t have any corporate sponsors, or shapers to craft the perfect board, or an endless travel budget to explore and progress, just a pure love of the ocean and a work ethic fueled by the American Dream.

As a humble surfboard repairman, he works by day to support his wife and two kids so when the buoys light up with swell, he’s in the lineup and ready to tempt the toothy wave. Take an inside look at the risk and reward of chasing Mavericks, and what it’s like living a life dedicated to this and nothing else.
