If you live in San Diego you likely recognize this guy as he frequents most of the well known breaks in his his vintage van covered in flowers and surf stickers hence the nickname "Groovy Flower Child". Anyone who has met Micah would never forget him as he may be the most Stoked grom on the planet (no joke). Not too long ago he was riding boards that he found in the bushes and within a few years he has progressed into one of the most talented longboarders in San Diego which is saying a lot. Our neighborhood is populated by surf royalty to include Skip Frye, Joel Tudor, Ryan Burch and many others. If you see Micah surfing you will likely see him on the nose or walking front to back making cutbacks look effortless. Not only is he a phenomenal surfer but he can ride anything. He absolutely rips his five foot fish that he shaped himself. One thing we love about Micah is that he makes everyone he meets feel special and is one of the friendliest people in and out of the water. We caught up with him in a short interview to learn more about him so here it goes!
