Dusty Payne Is Back After Hawaii Waves Nearly Ate Him Alive

After suffering numerous injuries that included fracturing his jaw in two places, breaking a temporal bone in his skull, and caving an eye socket during the Pipeline competition on January 8th, 2018, Dusty Payne is already back surfing the Maui waves he grew up riding.

“At the end of the day, Mother Nature controls everything,” Payne said in an interview for the film. “I’ve just always tried to keep pushing on and getting back to what I want to do, which is being in the water.”

The film "Relentless" features interviews from before this year’s Pipeline comp, as well as an interview after his accident where he speaks humbly about the experience and where he is today.

Best yet, the film shows the evolution of a young, tanned, Maui towhead who loved the water into a well-renowned and respected surfer, returning from a life-threatening injury.

These days, Payne is back in the water and couldn’t be happier about it.

“I just hope I’m able to inspire other people to not give up on their goals because of a setback,” Payne said.
