Gary Linden is a big-wave surfing legend. Well into his 60s, he still paddles out on big days and maintains a seat at the judge’s table for most of the world’s big-wave competitions. But more than that, Linden shapes some of the most sought-after big-wave surfboards, called “guns,” in the world. He’s been carving guns from agave trunks for years and they’re especially beautiful. In this terrific film, Linden carves an agave gun for Alex Gray, a future big-wave legend and one of the nicest, most humble pro surfers you’d be fortunate to meet. Gray’s reverence for the craft is a perfect match for a board like this.
