In the wake of Michael Peterson’s death, so much inspiring material of the star has resurfaced.
Surfing Magazine’s Steve Sherman took this photo of Kelly Slater and Wayne Lynch sitting with the legend.
And Surfer magazine posted a great article about Peterson here.

In honor of the star, we gathered some highlight clips of MP in his prime, including his famous cutback filmed by Alby Falzon in Morning of the Earth.
