The photo above says it all about Surf & Adventure Co. and Aloha Surfboards team rider Tyler Balak. Running with The Wild Lyfe crew demands that you’re committed to chasing swell and pushing your performance to the limit.

We’ve been following Tyler’s work in The Wild Lyfe project since its inception, and we couldn’t be more stoked for him –  and not just because he’s a super-talented surfer. Rather, we love that Tyler is a unique individual that lives life on his own terms and is chasing much more than swell. Nicknamed “The Professor,” Tyler is currently working on his doctorate at Old Dominion University, which is made even more impressive knowing how much time and energy he puts into his surfing.

The following video is an excerpt from The Wild Lyfe film, which is out now. Tyler will be delivering a bunch of copies to the shop soon, so we’ll give you the heads-up when they arrive. We are also in the planning stages of hosting a viewing party for the film, so stay tuned to the blog or our Facebook fan page for details.

In the meantime, enjoy watching Tyler doing his thing!
