Kyan Yang sets himself apart not only by his smooth style and effortless surf, but also by his colorful and fun boards. Recently, he has enjoyed taking Elmo, the Cookie Monster, or even Snoopy along for the ride.
With his father in charge of his conditioning and on-land training, Kyan is already a USA junior national team member and is hungry for more. In the meantime, and while away from competitions, he is often found charging some perfect A-frames on a typical glorious Southern California day.

Can you tell us a bit more about your passion for Surfing?
I originally started skateboarding at a young age and was very passionate about that. Then, I took up surfing because my friends were joining the middle school’s surf club. Slowly, it became more about surfing and less about skateboarding. Now, all I do is surf.
