Over the past several years, this Stewart Rider has traveled, surfed, and competed in Portugal, Spain, France, China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Brazil, Bali, Subwana, South Africa, Taiwan, Hawaii, and Mexico. Though he is a worldwide versed traveler you will most often see him ripping his favorite spots between San Onofre & Newport, here in Southern Orange, County. Last year, he was fortunate enough to surf the most exclusive wave on the planet, The Qiantang tide bore in Hangzhou, China. Event was put on by Redbull and Wabsono. With 8 surfers total, he surfed a tidal wave (happens once a year, due to the fall equinox) this wave goes for 3 plus hours down river.
