Surf Life: Hagan Kelly enjoys the bright side of life

"Surf Life" is Halogen TV's new surfing show featuring the life of wavehunter Hagan Kelly.

The lifestyle, the pursuit of waves, the secret spots. The premiere of "Surf Life" is scheduled for August 23rd, only on Halogen TV.

Hagan travels to secret hotspots in the British Virgin Islands, San Juan, Aguadilla, Trinidad and Tobago, and California in search of epic waves and meets some professional and unsung surfing heroes who give back.

Along the way we learn that the surfing lifestyle is just as much about the local community as it is the waves it craves.

Hagan goes on a journey to connect with surfers all around the world, to hear their stories and dig into the surf culture.

Hagan Kelly was born in Kahana, Maui, and started surfing on North Shore, Oahu, in 1987.

He surfed professionally on the ASP World Tour between 1998 and 2001 before entering a career in journalism.

Kelly worked as an editor for surf magazines and co-founded a surfboard and apparel company called Superbrand.

He currently works to build the brand, but he still makes time to get out on the waves alone or with a close friend.
