A legendary big-wave surfer, Archie is an accomplished waterman who is one of a handful of men able to successfully tow surf the enormous waves that break on Maui’s north shore. In addition to his achievements riding waves, he’s also a leader in the development of innovative safety equipment and rescue techniques using jet skis and water sleds.
