This is the One Beer Podcast presented by 805, where I get to sit down and have a cold one with some of the best personalities in surf. Mark Cunningham has lived a charmed life. He is without a doubt the most recognizable (and naturally gifted) bodysurfer in the world thanks to films like Sprout, A Brokedown Melody, and Come Hell or High Water. But he’s a surf fan, too, and a fan of surfing culture. A retired North Shore lifeguard, at 64, he’s seen so many changes in the surfing world and I really wanted to extract all that wisdom from him for listeners. I sat down with Mark for a wide-ranging interview after he got out of the water following an unruly session at Pipeline.
