Five-time Vans Triple Crown of Surfing champion Sunny Garcia was once scared of crashing waves. At the age of seven, living on the west side of Oahu in Waianae, friends convinced him to try and surf. He caught one wave and the rest is history.
His competitive spirit, no fear attitude and deep belief in what is right and wrong have led him not only into brawls, where his time in the weight room comes in handy, but into a champion surfing career spanning 17 years.
Splitting his time between homes in Oahu, Hawaii and Encinitas, California, Garcia is married to Raina (of whom he has a large tattoo on his side) and has three children from a previous marriage - Kaila, Logan and Stone.
