A bronzed Hawaiian named Duke Kahanamoku stands triumphant on the Olympic podium, a buttery-gold medal dangling from his muscled neck. Having just bested the world, the Duke is on Cloud 9. For this young Hawaiian, whom many have called the greatest swimmer of his era, this moment marks his fifth time standing on an Olympic podium, a feat that many never believed to be possible.
Overlooking a picturesque North Shore sunset, seven-time surfing world champ Layne Beachley sits down for a Talk Story session at Turtle Bay Resort’s Surfer the Bar. With a crowd of guests seated before her, she opens up about a wealth of issues, including how she envisions surfing evolving in the coming decades. The mood in the room is comfortable, with the guests sippin’ on craft cocktails and savoring an array of dining options, and the crowd hangs on Layne’s words. With Turtle Bay’s own Rocky Cannon acting as moderator, these Talk Story sessions offer up a venue unlike anything else you’ll find in the world. And now, through a partnership with action sports website Grind TV, Talk Story is about to become better than ever.
