Shaun Burns

Santa Cruz, California

Shaun started surfing around age 10, and has been in the water almost every day since. Growing up in Santa Cruz makes it easy to become a surf enthusiast. With a plethora of consistent world class waves throughout the county, the ocean became home to Shaun. He now competes professionally on the international World Surf League (WSL) around the globe. But before Shaun started to compete and travel around the world for surf contests, he completed his Bachelors degree in Environmental Management and Protection at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.
