A physicist might say that all things are in a perpetual state of change, but there are a few things that seem to find a way to resist. Or at least a few people. Clay Marzo is one of them. No matter how drastically the details of his life may change, Clay is Clay and he always will be. After Marzo got dropped by his foremost sponsor, sustained a serious injury and dabbled with obscurity, we took him to West Oz with Matt Meola. We learned that Clay is still socially cumbersome. He still gets rabidly excited. And he is still doing shit that nobody else can do on a surfboard — click play for proof.
