For the latest installment of Roam TV, Smartwool athlete, and Ultrarunner, Paul Hamilton traded in his running shoes for a wetsuit and surfboard to go surfing in Tofino, British Columbia. Avid surfer and fellow Smartwool athlete Austin Smith gave Paul a crash course in surfing the Pacific Northwest.
Paul is an accomplished athlete when it comes to running, ski mountaineering, and mountain biking. Paul had never tried his hand at surfing. Through lots of trial and error and bigger waves than he bargained for, Paul learned first hand that surfing is definitely harder than it looks but well worth the effort.
