Hawaiian Waterman, Champion Big Wave Surfer & Spear Fisherman
Mark Healey relies on just one tool to command his ever-frenetic schedule, the global weather forecast. “The ocean and the wind are the only things that dictate how and where I spend my time,” Healey says. Earning his first surf sponsorship at age 13 and going pro at 17, he has racked up victories at big-wave contests and in 2008, nabbed the Spearfishing World Cup.
One of his main ambitions is to use film, photography, and hands-on education to deepen the broader culture’s relationship with the ocean. “I absolutely believe that people will only protect something if they value it. My life's mission is to inspire others to value the ocean the way I do.”
