When is it not fun doing stunts, surfing, doing what you do, and then seeing it on the big screen? I’ve done a bunch of stuff in films and whatnot, and this one was a lot of fun because we got to just surf. I’ve been doing a bunch of stunt work for ten or fifteen years, and this wasn’t getting run over by a big football player, or some stunt that leaves you feeling sick.
The first time I surfed Jaws I was really young and did some surfing for The Big Bounce, some stuff for Blue Crush, and a lot of others. I was 4 years old doing some acting on the North Shore. I don’t remember every single movie or every single stunt, but I’ve done anything from bodies falling from the sky to riding a street bike and having a car blow up next to me. Basically, everything that hurts. This time I got to surf and have a good time.
