Pro Surfer Lives Off The Land

Pro surfer Aamion Goodwin’s child­hood was straight out of The Jun­gle Book. He trav­eled around the South Pacif­ic fol­low­ing his father from New Zealand to remote islands in Fiji and back.

By age sev­en Aamion could live com­plete­ly off the land. He could make his own spears to hunt and fish. He knew how to col­lect fruits, climb coconut trees, col­lect the nuts, and crack them open with a machete.

The expo­sure to a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent land­scapes and peo­ple at a young age had such a pow­er­ful impact that Aamion want­ed his chil­dren to have a sim­i­lar experience.

The Good­win Project is just that experience.

Aamion and his wife Daize, both pro surfers, packed up their chil­dren and a film crew and trav­eled to 18 dif­fer­ent coun­tries to edu­cate their chil­dren and dis­cov­er what’s most valu­able in their lives.
