Josh Kerr he of the Kerr-upt flip was christened on a bodyboard but graduated to a surfboard at age eleven and was winning air shows by 16. He has won two Airshow World Titles in 2001 and 2003 and for the last few years has cemented a place on the World Tour. Kerr grew up on the Gold Coast and honed his skills on the long point breaks, surfing all day and partying all night, he now resides in the US with his wife and 2 groms and lives a hop skip jump away from Rusty Presindorfer surfboard factory down San Diego way. Big heart, big smiles how can’t you love him..
Jay Davies is as big as Western Australia (his homeland). He is strong. He is powerful. He is big, tanned, dark.Yet, he surfs like a fleet-footed pixie. He tosses himself to the air, spins, and doesn’t come down. Or when he does, he comes down fins first and tweaked. He has travelled the world based solely on his surf skills and he claims to have no other skills, “I don’t have any other skills,” besides drinking beer. “I like to drink beer but it doesn’t pay.” And he does like to drink beer. He likes to drink beer and party. He once led an entire dance club in a wild and sudden acapella version of Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance (including dance moves). Women swooned.
If you were to compile a list of pro surfers with the weirdest haircuts, Noa Deane would be the yardstick. Look closely; it resembles the mushroom character from Super Mario Brothers. Rad. Weird. It’s certainly one of the most awesome manes to ever slide inside a Snapper Rocks chamber. When Noa’s not blowing fins at D- Bah you can find him tapping into the left-hand side of his brain getting creative with his 35mm camera, painting & drawing dinosaurs with crooked limbs.
You are one of "OUR KIND"...
