That said, there's one guy you should doff your cap to (another dated cliche'? ) His name is Chris Falzone, and, in friend Rob Pollard's words, "Chris is a husband, father, son, friend to many, 6 years a surfer, photographer, musician, multi-craft surf-wizard (mats, boards, handplanes, etc.), purveyor of stoke, dreamer, and wave hound."
Rob continues: "Chris has been a Big Influence on me as a Surfer and Friend. I have Learned a lot from him over the years. Chris is Stoked in and out of the water! He Charges Everything from Dribblers to Drainers, but always takes time to Capture some Moments for the Boys on camera! I am Proud to call him a Friend, and Always Stoked to Share waves with him! He has Always Shared his Positive Mat Surfing Experiences with the people we meet in and out of the water! Yeeeeewwwww!
Chris is an ambidextrous slider with no preference, right or left! He has a Very Free Style letting go when he Mat Rides! He rides DaFins, Duckfeet, and Yucca Fins! His favorite mat so far is a 4GF Standard SS! He plays the Guitar, Ukulele, and various other instruments. He was a music major in College at Florida State.
I’ve always Admired his Style on the mat, the way he Rides just looks Fun and Cool 😎!"
