Four-time WSL World Champion Lisa Andersen talks about her iconic career on tour. She looks back at surfing's emotional debut at the Olympics, the awesome unpredictability of ocean surfing versus wave pools, the huge stakes, and her experience surfing in Japan. She tells her origin story, starting to surf in Florida, learning life lessons as you learn to surf, being taught by surf magazines, and then moving to Huntington Beach alone and committing to the sport, and finally getting on tour. She discusses opening up through surfing, pushing through criticism, and what went into her absolutely dominant four year title run. She also touches on motherhood on the Championship Tour, why she likes surfing in Florida over California, her 30-year relationship with Roxy and Quiksilver, and her thoughts on the new Rip Curl WSL Finals format.
