Thank you Jax for a great surf contest! I had never really surfed this place before and happy that I was able to win. Check out Surfline’s story about the 2013 Kona Pro in Jax.  

Frame of Mind – Paying dues

By Ernesto Kelly

Everyone knows that Evan Geiselman rips in small waves, but there’s more to this young surfer than meets the eye, as he shows his drive and determination to develop his skills in bigger, heavier waves.

In Frame of Mind- Paying Dues, Evan talks about his early years growing up in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, and the drive he has always had to challenge himself in bigger waves. This year, he got to put it to the test as he surfed “some of the heaviest waves” of his life at Teahupoo and paid his dues, while getting some of the best barrels ever.

Featuring Mick Fanning, Evan Geiselman, Owen Wright, and Rob Machado, this collection of short stories offers a glimpse into the seldom seen personas behind some of surfing’s biggest names.
Keep an eye out for the rest of this intriguing series, hitting the web over the coming months.
