    Curren is a master. Sure, lots of other guys have all the moves and tricks, but Curren connects them all with effortless grace, while all the others grovel and pump between maneuvers.

    Was always a Martin Potter fan as a kid. If I recall correctly, one of the first to work aerials into his every day and contest surfing. I have never been able to catch air (at least on purpose,) but still cool to witness. For the east coast, have to say Matt Kechele. As for NJ, has to be Dean Randazzo.

    Anyone who was on that boat for the first Cortes bank mission! That happened when the internet was somewhat "new" and that first video footage remains seared in my memory banks. Of the non-heroic variety, I would pick anyone out there who is still exploring and finding new spots

    Jock Sutherland- He was something of a counter culture hero when I grew. I'll bet less than 10% of the surfers on this post have ever heard of him. One of the original pioneers of the North Shore. I like your idea to get something interesting going on this forum. I dont know if we should have an all-other catagory- Talk about something other than surfing- Boobies are a good!

He decided not be a pro surfer but make surf movies and music instead. He really caught a huge break when Thicker than Water's soundtrack blew up and his career started from there. How sick is that to have surfing influence and pretty much start your career. Now he's living the life. Not only is a great surfer, he is an incredible person as well. Whenever he goes on tour he usually just donates all the proceeds to charity because he doesn't want/need the money. definitely one of my favorite surfers and humans on the planet.

    Video says it all.
