// Still Swell at 85 //

Nothing gets us stoked more than seeing people do what they love most regardless of age or adversity. Recently deceased Bondi legend Barry ‘Magoo’ McGuigan was the inspiration behind Dean Saffron‘s award-winning short film, Still Swell at 85, that gives us a glimpse into the life this Australian surf icon who continued to surf until final days, despite battling non-Hodgkins lymphoma disease for the last few years. With a twinkle in his eye and sense of contentment that comes from a life spent in the ocean, Magoo was not only the world’s oldest competitive surfer who competed this July at age 85, but a role model whose positive outlook on life reminds us that there really is no excuse to not make time for exercise and keeping the mind, body and spirit well nourished.
