Gerry Lopez – AKA Mr. Pipeline – is best known as a surfing pioneer, charging monster Pipeline and riding like nobody every did before him. He change the way people surfed and thought about tube riding.
What most have not known about Gerry Lopez is that he’s been a huge advocate for healthy living, balance and is very dedicated to a daily yoga praactice…all of which he credits to helping him continue to totally charge both the surf and snow at age 67.
Below is a video of Gerry giving a talk to gave to St. Charles Health on Staying Healthy through all of life’s stages and ages.
It’s a pretty quick video with many valuable messages. My favorite quote from this piece:
Man sacrifices his health to make money. Then, he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health.
