Andrew is “that guy.” The guy who excels at everything he does. The kind of guy you love to hate-straight-A student, good at skating and snowboarding, does well with the ladies, and he’s in a band. On top of all that, he can surf halfway decently, too. He’s good enough to be rated fourth overall in Explorer Juniors and sixth overall in Open Men in the NSSA. He’s from San Clemente and follows Beach House greats like Geoff Moysa and Mike Losness-his style resembles a little of both. A versatile surfer, he has a clean style, can launch big airs, and is aggressive. He’s also got an eye for linking two or three big moves on a wave. Basically, Andrew is the best surfer in the world-well, maybe someday. The question is whether Andrew will choose college or the WQS route. He’s only a junior, so he has plenty of time to think about it. Either way, I’m sure he’ll be fine.-Pete Taras
