Nope, these are not ambassadors, not professional surfers, kiters, divers, or water-people, necessarily. They are however living a life that inspires. They dive in, are passionate lovers of the ocean, the environment, they kick ass one way or another, and most importantly they are our friends. Not everything they do is inspiring, but give'm a follow anyhow. 

Quinten Rubalcava   You will see Quinten starring in most of our surf edits. Ojai native and surf obsessed, he's first in and last out of any given session. Patagonia and Firewire ambassador and living proof time dedicated to your craft pays off.

Eddie   Eddie’s a chill dude. Quiet when you meet him, he seems to think about what he is going to say before he says it, then he usually backs it up with an experience. You can find Eddie cruising through a lineup, enjoying a quick sail to the islands, or in the ocean just about anywhere. They say he is a nice guy, but we think he is a really nice guy.

Phil Muller   Besides absolutely ripping on anything on the water, board underfoot or not, he is one of the best sailing coaches on the planet. Known for his enthusiasm, fun factor, and smarts, you're guaranteed learning something big when you hang out with Phil.

Dan Malloy   We grew up obsessing on surf films by the Malloy's. Dan's of course a remarkable surfer, but also an amazing storyteller, farmer, activist, and teacher. He's one of the nicest guys ever and lives his beliefs through and through doing good things for people and planet. We are forever thankful for his continued inspiration and help.

Riley Gibbs   Hanging out with Riley does two things: teaches you to push yourself harder and smile more doing it. That smile is always there, working out, prepping gear, on the water, in the cafe (bar?). He's always the one having the best time. Currently, Riley's traveling the globe gearing up for the 2020 Olympics... grinning ear to ear.

Romain Screve   We met Romain when he was a 10 year old. He already seemed to have everything figured out. Winning, especially, but also ways to save the planet (more winning). Romain is a challenger, always looking at problems and solutions in new and thought-provoking, mind-bending ways. That's why we love doing any activity with him, on or off the water.

Connor Bainbridge   Hailing from the old country, Connor not only sounds smart... he is smart. He's an Olympic Windsurfing coach for the Brits, and as such noodles on the techniques and technology of making things with foils go fast. If it's advice or knowledge you seek, bring your notebook because you won't remember everything he has to offer.

Sterling Henken   No Instagram, no Facebook, barely owns a phone, writes short stories in his free time, reads a new book every week, only listens to music on his vinyl, surfs every chance he gets, grows a 10/10 beard, and has a dream to sail around the world.

Daniela Moroz   We are stoked to live just a few hours away from Daniela. Her resume and acumen bely her age. Rolex  Yachtswoman of the Year , multiple World Champion, competitive swimmer, and on and on. We only have limited space here so in summary: She kicks ass!

Manuel Resano   Manny's had a huge impact on our lives. He's been our coach since we were about 12 years old and has taught us endless life lessons. We call it "the mindset." It goes way beyond coaching and sailing. You're likely to see him on Surfline charging massive waves where he lives in Nicaragua, or a couple miles up the coast at Mavericks. He's also dad to three hard charging surfing daughters. Manny's the man.

Dónal Collins   Don seems to see the world a little differently, maybe it’s cultural, I don’t know. He hates when you pay him back, he calls you out when you know you deserve it (especially when he beats you at something) and he cherishes every moment because he knows these are the good times.

Evan Heffernan   Evan's always all-in, whether it's kite foiling training, penning apps for kite foiling, filming kite foiling, tuning kites for kite foiling, adjusting foils for kite foiling, or just having fun kite foiling. He likes stuff other than kite foiling too. No one knows what though.

Mathew Pierce   If you want to have a fun time, call Matty! He's stoked on life and ultimately stokes you on it too. If "Eddie would go" so would Matty. He charges all things water, boards, speed, adrenaline, related, and even stokes those less fortunate with his contributions of time and effort with all sorts of cool charities... Go Matty!
