Mike Gleason: Sam and I have been through so much shit trying to get this wave. It’s been a long, hard road, and I can’t tell you how many miles we’ve put on that Suburban, spinning it into ditches, almost dying, or driving 40 hours to not even surf. But Sam’s knowledge is just incredible. Not only in the ways he can read forecasts and maps and charts, but also his ability to read waves. There’s no one else I’d rather have by my side in a situation like this.
