Hometown: Santa Cruz     Stance: Regular     Specialty: Rail surfing

Favorite wave: Pleasure Point, Santa Cruz

Goals: To be the best father and husband. To live a healthy, happy life with no regrets.

Your scariest wave: Pipe. It’s a place that deserves all the respect. I never felt comfortable out there and most likely never will. Mavericks is also one that scares me, but I want to have a go at it soon.

What you like to do when you aren’t surfing or teaching others to surf: Hang out with my family, and play golf as much as possible.

What you like most about owning Surf School Santa Cruz: Getting to share the stoke of surfing with random people that I have never met. I also get to watch someone fall in love with the ocean right in front of my eyes which is pretty amazing.

Learning to Surf: I grew up surfing along West Cliff and my parents and I lived about a half a block from the ocean in between Steamers Lane and Natural Bridges State Beach.

Goals: To find the ultimate wave.

Your scariest wave: Jaws. I was so scared I didn’t go.

Specialty: I specialize in getting into and out of the ocean daily. I also specialize in possibly dangerous situations when conditions may be life threatening in some people’s eyes. I strive to have as much fun as possible during the time I spend in the water.

Favorite board: I enjoy riding all kinds of different surfboards. so I guess I’d say that I specialize in R and D in a way. Simply because I’m …

Sponsors: COVA Clothing, Futures Fins, Pro-lite, Bark Surfboards, Surftech, Maui Jim, Buell Wetsuits

Favorite waves: Rincon, Sunset Beach, East Point, Ocean Beach, Mavericks

Goals: Not to get scared out of big wave surfing. Surf Jaws on a proper swell and backdoor that terrifying west bowl. Qualify for the Mavericks contest one day. Learn how to avoid doing wheelie airs … and have a good time doing it!

Your scariest wave: My scariest wave was one I shared with Pat Gudauskus this last year at Mavericks on December 20. I had ridden a bunch of waves already and had wanted to get a bigger one, and was “in the zone” as they say. I saw the one I wanted right after paddling out from another wave, turned around really deep, and paddled for it. I just barely made it …

Hometown: Santa Cruz     Stance: Regular     Specialty: Carving

Sponsors: Nowadays I really don’t have sponsors. More like supporters such as Billabong, Billabong Surfshop, Aloha Grille, Channel Islands, Surftech and Future Fins. These companies support me and I support them. I don’t just like the products, I like the people who work there as well. They are like extended family. Bud, Sammy, Numa, Dustin, Tom – thanks!

Favorite waves: My favorite wave is one where there is no one out. I surf a lot with Noi, Homer, Marcel and Ryan. We surf alone all the time in really fun surf. I like overhead hollow waves where there are a lot of sharks and old men.

Goals: I still have goals with my surfing. I’m still looking for that perfect board. Still trying to ride a wave to the best of my ability. I have goals in my business …

I’ve been good friends with Timmy for a long time. He’s rad and he lives to the beat of his own drum. Timmy doesn’t really like contests, yet he does really well in them. He missed making the World Tour by one heat last year. We have traveled all over the world together and his surfing and tube riding is some of the best I’ve seen ever! He’s a great ambassador for O’Neill and for surfers worldwide.

Hometown: Huntington Beach     Stance: Regular        Specialty: Barrels & travel

Sponsors: Body Glove, Pearson Arrow surfboards

Favorite waves: O’Neill, Firewire, Smith, Prolite

Goals: Have fun traveling and shooting while surfing in select contests

What do you like to do when you aren’t surfing? I love golfing with Nelly, Bud and Ratboy (and taking their money), and hanging out with my girl Megan.

Three time Mavericks comp winner helps those afflicted with drug or alcohol addiction

By Nelly

I’ve known Flea for a long time. One of the hottest up-and-coming kids, he seemed to get really good really fast. I was amazed when he started charging Mavericks and he quickly became “the guy” out there too. His life has changed in the last five years, and he now spends most of his time trying to help people which is incredible for our community. Flea now runs Fleahab—an organization that takes recovering addicts surfing—and has a beautiful wife and two awesome daughters.

Hometown: Santa Cruz       Stance: Regular           Specialty: Big Waves

Sponsors: Body Glove, Pearson Arrow surfboards

Favorite waves: The Ave, Mavericks and The Lane
