Kohl Christensen's life balances the search for the biggest waves with building and farming at home in Hawaii. Deep Water, a new short video series, follows Kohl and his friends as they chase huge surf around the world.

Hit the jump to watch episodes two and three.

Maui in the morning and the North Shore in the afternoon. In the second part of the Deep Water series, Patagonia ambassadors Kohl Christensen and Ramon Navarro double-session one of the first swells of 2011 at Peahi and an Oahu outer reef.

After a double-session day in Hawai'i, Kohl Christensen chases a swell
to the cold waters of Northern California. In this third part of the
Deep Water series, Kohl speaks about Mavericks, remembering Sion Milosky
and the toll big wave surfing can take on the body.

The Chase: A Tiny Film
Honestly, we went to Iceland to catch big fish. It was that simple. We wanted to bask in the late Arctic sun while bringing dreamy meter-long Atlantic salmon to hand. We wanted to drink whiskey afterwards, go to bed and do it again every day we could. What surprised us wasn’t our ability to check…

Stepping from Sand to Pavement – San Sebastián Surfilm Festibal 2014
