Evan Lamb, Instructor
Bio: Originally as a grommet, I loved skateboarding going down to the local skate parks and making ramps outside my house. Until, one day my older neighbor gave me his beat up surfboard, because he was going to college back east. The summer after receiving my first surfboard, my parents put in me with a couple of friends into a surf camp in Dana point. I’m not going to lie I was scared of the ocean and its raw power at first. Nevertheless, the instructors forced me out there and pushed me into countless waves. After catching my first couple of waves, I was hooked on the ocean and the sport of surfing. Growing up as a surf hungry grom in Irvine wasn’t easy. However, my parents were very understanding of my desire for surfing and provided rides whenever available to the beach. Also, I had countless friends with beach houses in Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. Luckily for me, my friends were willing and happy to take me in for the summers. The beginning of high school was hard, because none of my friends surfed until I made a couple of older friends who surfed. My parents didn’t like the fact that I was hanging out with kids older than me, but I could have cared less. I was getting rides to surf and the brotherhood that came our surfing. After high school, I attended Santa Barbara City College for two years. I am currently transferring to UCSB in fall 2010 with an economics and accounting major.
