In the final episode of Made In Central California, filmmaker Graham Nash tells the untold story of how the death of the big wave Ghost Tree helped spark the paddle renaissance. “I really feel like the 2010 winter was the tipping point for the modern era of big wave paddle surfing,” former Surfing Magazine editor and big wave surfer Evan Slater says in the final episode of Made In Central California: Ghost Tree. “That was a semi El Niño winter, there were a lot of big days, but a specific Mavericks swell just opened up such new territory for all these guys.”
