Feature Interview - Robert Yehling on surfer Clay Marzo

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:10 pm on 28 July 2015

Surfer Clay Marzo knows waves. At the age of 15, he became the first surfer to receive two perfect 10's at the US Men's National Competition. He knows waves, but often he had a hard time understanding people. After years of feeling isolated from his peers, years when the only peace he felt was in the surf, he was diagnosed with Asperger's. Author Robert Yehling tells his story in the new book, 'Just Add Water: A Surfing Savant's Journey with Asperger's'.
