Paige Alms joins us from her cozy bungalow in Maui, one of the few women in the world charging 50 foot waves between Jaws in Hawaii and Mavericks in California. Paige has won two Big Wave Tour World Titles, and it’s hard to miss this 5’11” female force of awesomeness. And while her titles are certainly impressive, what sticks with me most in talking with Paige is her mindset, including her legacy and what she wants to humbly leave behind. Paige and I dig deep into defeating fear, and we even talk a little philosophy. She’s sponsored by one of my favorite companies, Patagonia, which ties directly into her playful Trashy Selfie Project, which I highly recommend you check out and more importantly, take part in. Paige has us asking ourselves...what's our legacy going to be?
