Born and raised to an American dad and Mexican mother in Pasquales, Mexico, 17-year-old Al Cleland did not experience the typical surfer upbringing.

It’s hard to imagine how the charging teenager feels, but to us, we see all that joy, fear, and accomplishment rolling into one incredible experience. We’re looking forward to seeing more from the young gun in the future.
