Hugo Vau’s not a household name. He’s not the first guy you think of when you think of big wave surfing. But it’s almost a sure thing that you’ve seen photos of him on some of the largest waves in the world. He rolls with some of the best big wave surfers on the planet, but isn’t usually counted as one of them.
Vau’s life is tethered to the ocean. As a fisherman, he ekes out a living on a boat. But for fun, he does something that most wouldn’t even consider.
