Was born underwater in an experimental tank known as a "bathysphere." In the early '90s, helped develop the "tow-in" surfing technique, which involves using watercraft such as jet skis to create and ride bigger waves. Invented the foilboard surfboard, which allows surfing in the deep ocean by adding hydrofoil technology to a traditional board. Performed stunt work for the big-budget action movies Waterworld (1995) and Die Another Day (2002). Took part in a six-day biking and paddle-surfing marathon from Malibu to Manhattan in 2009 to raise awareness and money for autism, Lou Gehrig's disease and cystic fibrosis. Has suffered numerous injuries while surfing, including broken ribs and ankles and separated shoulders. Surfs a notorious break off northern Maui known as Jaws, which features some of the largest and most powerful waves in the world, some reaching 50 feet in height.
