About John

John Daniels is a true outdoorsman, constantly seeking adventure around the globe. Over the past 12 years, his passion for surfing has driven him to travel, compete and surf some of the best waves in the world: Mexico, Australia, Indonesia, Hawaii and more. Starting as a top amateur surfer in high school, John then moved on to compete on the World Qualifying Series (WQS) tourJohn has always been a part of the local surfing community and has been on the beach every summer for the past 15 years running surf camps for kids. Inspiring the next generation through teaching, John has found his calling in surf coaching and judging surf contests. He is still in the water weekly and always keeping an eye out for the next big swell. 

Traveling for work or for pleasure, John continues to seek waves and other adventures throughout the US and internationally. Not just an avid waterman, John’s hiked Mount Whitney, the tallest mountain in the contiguous US, and backpacked and hiked thousands of miles of trails in Canada, California, Alaska, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, Montana and Wyoming. In recent years, John has gotten into rock climbing and is involved in the local climbing community. If he gets a day off from the beach, you can find him in the local mountains and deserts exploring new rock climbing areas.
