Koa Rothman Spent Most Of 2019 Knifing Pits In Paradise
This Is Livin’: The end of the year edition.
You’ve probably heard or seen Koa Rothman’s weekly video blog, This Is Livin’. It’s like every other surfing blog, and it features a lot of surfing with Koa who often finds himself in big tubes at world class spots.
This episode of This Is Livin’ isn’t significantly longer than the others, but it is officially This is Livin’ 2.0, The Movie. Rather than documenting a week, or even just a single day in Koa’s life, this ep covers all the best surfing he did in 2019. From Pipe at home in Hawaii, to Mavericks on the mainland’s west coast, Teahupo’o in Tahiti and to some dreamy right-hand points in Mexico.
Regardless of your blog disposition, this edit is worthy of 20-minutes of your time.
