Presentation: Personality Profiles of Big Wave Surfers

In this discussion we will share our research concerning the personality profiles of big wave surfers. Using the NEO-PI-3 and the Five Factor Inventory (FFI) we will examine the personality profiles of the worlds top big wave surfers. The NEO and the FFI result in scores on the big five personality dimensions of Neuroticism, Extroversion, Openness, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness. The discussion will compare personality differences between big wave surfers and other elite athletes (including regular surfers).

Do big wave surfers live up to the stereotype of being introverted reckless risk takers or do they compare favorably with other elite athletes? We administered personality assessments to over 50 of the best big wave surfers in the world to find out.
