If a single wave could shape a surfer’s destiny, Indar Unanue’s 2008 bomb at Waimea shot the Basque lad from obscurity on a path to becoming one of Europe’s premiere freesurfers.
Fresh of the plane on the North Shore and severely under-gunned, Indar, whose name means ‘power’ in Basque, charged a set wave at the Bay on a 7’0″ turned heads near and far and set himself up for a career chasing perfect swells around the globe.

But who exactly is Indar? What drove him to a career chasing perfect swells? Check out Hidden Lives: Indar Unanue, a story about the power of dreams and the dreams of Power.
