I thought it was good. Their perspective seemed to be the transition from the most driven competitor to what now as he not so much leaves but is forced out. They did gush a bit about his exceptionalism and legendary competitive drive, but they didn't explore that duality of it where that same drive that made him the 11x champ is now the gnawing biting voice that is constantly being reminded of his age by a body that can still hit the high notes at 47, but maybe can't sustain the long slog. His life is full with friends, jujitsu, a stable woman golf, body surfing and still surfing but I think the main insight was left to another day: it didn't matter if was surfing or biking, boxing or cards, that drive that got him to the top and kept him at the top doesn't age and he has. Are those memories of greatness a source of joy in his advanced years or just a cruel reminder of his growing limitations?

The backdoor right is the wave that would be the best of almost ever surfer's life. It's one of hundreds for him.
