Meet the Degree 33 Crew | Hunter Lysaught

Over the years we have had the privilege of working with some amazing people.  One of the people we are most thankful for is ambassador Hunter Lysaught.  If there was one word to describe this guy we would have to use the word Integrity.  Not only is he one of the stand out surfers in San Diego, he is also a dedicated Christian, loving husband and loyal friend.  After several years as a competitive professional surfer Hunter made a career change and is now a well respected realtor here in San Diego (if you need a realtor hit him up!).  Many of our high performance shortboards have been tested and refined with Hunter's feedback to include the Black Arrow, the Cloud and the new One Board Quiver.  We caught up with Hunter a while back to learn more about his upbringing and who he is today.
