From the Owner, Kyle Busey:

“I am a firm believer that if you work hard towards your goals it will translate to success. My goal is to show these kids, that with hard work, dedication, and positive thinking anything can be accomplished. This is why I focus on these key fundamentals and good surfing simply coming as a byproduct.”
