Michael February Is A Lean Mean Ripping Machine
I love how this kid Michael February surfs. Like his South African peers Jordy Smith and Damien Fahrenfort, he’s over six-feet tall, knows his way in and out of barrels, and throws a mean tail whip.
But unlike Jordy and Dooma, he’s black.
Hailing from Cape Town, February is starting to make his move on the WQS and recently surfed in the Volcom Pipe Pro. According to his ASP bio, he’s interested in “Surfing, music, design, and soccer” and has been surfing since he was seven years old. It might be going out on a limb, but I wouldn’t bet against Michael February being the first black man to make the World Championship Tour—he’s that good.—JC
