The first time I met Justin Quirk, I was working at the City of Oceanside Surf Camp. He was a tiny camper with a big blond head of hair and huge ears–like a surf-style Yoda from Star Wars. After a while, he just disappeared–his dad moved to Cabo San Lucas and took eleven-year-old Justin with him. It wasn’t ’til a couple of years ago that I finally saw Justin again. Not only did he grow into his ears, but his surf style and demeanor matured as well–he’d become quite a talented surfer. Not many people know of this kid, because he’s spent most of his teenage years blowing up in Cabo–out of the sight of the surf industry. Well, now he’s back (although he still spends a lot of time in Cabo), and he’s ready to show off his Jedi Knight style–may the Force be with you, Justin.
