Gerry Lopez is one of the most influential and stylish surfers of all time. Dubbed Mr. Pipeline for the ease in which he charged his home break, Gerry abruptly left for Bend, Oregon in the 1990’s. For anyone that surfs that seems a very strange place. Very far from the ocean, yet close to cold river surfing and great powder.

So why the move? Gerry talked with GrindTV to set it all straight. There’s even  full podcast in there to let you zen out to the masters voice.
