Mike Losness

Surfing

Mike is from San Clemente, CA; where he grew up and where he still lives and surfs today—As evidenced by his mad skills, this is somehting that Mike has doing since the age of seven, when his dad taught him how to make it happen at San Onofre. Though Mike got his chops on a longboard, by age 10 he had transitioned to a shortboard, and from there the story really takes flight. For the past ten years (on the tails of a successful competitive stint- Mike is a 3 x NSSA National Champion among other proud wins and podiums), Mike has been traveling the world seeking out wild surf destinations and perfect waves. No doubt his travels will inspire envy in just about almost anyone, with a partial list that including Russia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Morocco, India, Africa, Egypt and Scotland. Thrugh these travels Mike has been featured as a key character in several of Taylor Steele's flics, including "Stranger than Fiction", "Sipping Jetstreams" and "Castles in the Sky" to name a few.

Beyond the surf, Mike is hugely passionate about his art, grubbing fresh veggies from his garden, shooting photography and skateboarding. As an accomplished painter, many of his surfboards and collateral for his list of sponsors feature his art.
