We Stand on the Shoulders of Giants
Surfing means a lot of things to a lot of people. The ‘Sport of Kings’ has existed for hundreds of years and is now enjoyed by millions across the globe through a variety of disciplines.
In the mid-1970s and early-1980s, seven individuals were instrumental in the forming of professional surfing.
They were surfers.
They worked, traveled, shaped and competed when they could.
And beneath any scoring system or contest format or sponsorship agreement was a burning desire to unlock the opportunity to surf for a living and the belief that surfing’s transformative abilities can and should be shared with the world.
It's because of these seven Founders that 42 years later we're able to take the sport of pro surfing to new heights. So this next step is in honor of those seven, The Founders, and their dream.
