Morgan Maassen is the surf photographer/videographer/film maker/world traveller/Santa Barbara cafe owner that pretty much lives the definition of a “dream job.” Now CNN has created a little film and article about the guy behind the images of Stephanie Gilmore, Kelly Slater, and so many more that gets to the heart of what he does and how he got there.
