Derek Dunfee

Experiencing the North Shore of Oahu for the first time was all Derek Dunfee needed to spur his quest for bigger waves. He has since committed himself by training hard, maintaining a positive attitude and putting himself on the line whenever the swell models blink brightest. Now Derek is a world-renowned big wave surfer, winning an XXL Monster Paddle award in 2009 and following it up with the 2010 Surfer Poll Worst Wipeout award for a beastly fall on a mountain-sided wave at Mavericks. In this episode of InnerViews, we look at Derek’s big wave exploits as well as discover his passion for photography and filmmaking. From navigating huge tubes to experimenting with various cameras, this episode has it all and it’s not one you’ll want to miss.
