My Old Man: Shane Dorian

Fear and family with one of surfing's finest fathers

With Father’s Day around the corner, the folks at Yeti just released the first in a series of films celebrating strong family men, and the subject is none other than multi-XXL award-winner and perennial big-wave hero, Shane Dorian. Working with Chris Malloy and Co. over at Farm League on the films, the series opens with Dorian at home, hunting with his young son, Jackson. The Dorian clan live an idyllic life, on their own terms. This film captures beautifully the complexity of a big wave surfer’s relationship to fear, family, and fatherhood, and how those things work together to both push and ground a man like Dorian.
