"Fred Van Dyke can speak from his heart to the depth and breadth of the "ocean-aware" experience - from
big-wave surfing to the spiritual world to be seen in a sea lion's eyes."

Fred was a principle surfer in the award winning documentary SURFING FOR
LIFE. David L. Brown writes:
"Legendary surfing pioneer Fred Van Dyke was an extremely important
character in our film "Surfing for Life." His remarkably honest,
thoughtful and self-effacing storytelling was invaluable in helping us
manifest our themes about the value of community, friendship, love,
closeness to nature, passionate involvement, and coping with the challenges
My co-producer, Roy Earnest, and I were delighted and amazed
with Fred's emotional honesty, his sense of humor and his ability to
articulate difficult personal issues. Not only was he a huge asset to the
documentary, he was a compelling and inspiring speaker who graciously spoke
at dozens of our premieres throughout Hawaii and California (and Montana).
As a speaker and a robust senior, Fred is an inspiration to surfers and
non-surfers alike, and to anyone who wants insight into a richly meaningful
life or the keys to successful aging. "
