Sandy Clunas has been presenting his own podcast 'The After Hours Lounge' though-out 2020. This is his last podcast for 2020 with fellow Club Vass legend, Max Rowe!

'Max is a professional windsurfer and all-round UK windsurfing legend having spent almost a decade on tour competing and 4 of those years within the top 15.
We discussed his late start into windsurfing and his attitude of keeping professional, yet trying not to put too much pressure on himself and enjoy the journey. We talked about sponsorship deals, both good and bad, and the stresses of always trying to stay relevant and keep your job within a small industry.
After that, we moved onto more serious territory. I remember being in Cape Town with Max one winter and he jokingly ask me to feel this hard lump on his stomach. A few months later he was in a hospital in Austria at the first event of the year being told it was a tumor...
Luckily, it was benign, but it still needed removing through highly invasive surgery. A truly life-changing and altering experience even for someone as chilled as Max.
Finally, we moved onto going bald and why in the grand scheme of things it's not that bad and becoming a new dad and balancing that with a lifestyle of traveling the world.
A huge thing we kept coming back to throughout the chat was how Max's experiences changed his perspective, from being dropped by sponsors, having a 17cm tumor removed from his stomach to having a baby.
Not as mental health-centric as other episodes but an awesome conversation nonetheless!’
