Chris Ahrens has surfed for over 50 years. He worked as the editor of several surf magazines and wrote for every major surfing publication in the U.S. Ahrens once held a world’s record for having the most people to ride one wave and has MC’d numerous events, including two world surfing competitions, the Moores Cancer Center Luau and Longboard Invitational (22 years); and the Switchfoot Bro-Am (10 years). He has been the subject of numerous articles in the SD Reader and other North County Papers. Ahrens “learned to write through desperation” during a time when he was “broke and homeless, living on the beaches of NSW, Australia (1972-1974)” – a time when “fifty bucks from an article could last an entire month.” Chris volunteers with AB&C Youth Foundation and likes to teach surfing to high school and middle school students.
