Gerry Lopez, also known as “Mr. Pipeline," is a renowned surfer, actor, and yogi — and he is sitting just four feet in front of me. His long, salt and pepper hair is tied into a neat ponytail at the nape of his neck, and he has a broad smile that is absolutely infectious.

Cover Photo by Alex Wang I got up at the crack of dawn to catch my flight to San Francisco, where I would then connect to Reno and take a shuttle to Squaw Valley.
