An east coast legend. Holland was competative force in the late 80s and early 90s. One of his most memorable moments came at the 1988 Pipeline Masters, when due to an interference, he ended Tom Carrol's run at a world title in 10-12' foot pipe. His best year on tour was the 1990-91 season when he finished eighth in the world.
Holland proved it could be done, paving the way for other east coasters like: the Hobgoods', the lopezs' and Mr. Kelly Slater himself.
