One of modern surfing’s first groms, Bob Holland lives in the here and now, but you’d think he’s a teenager. His daily workout and perspective keeps him young. He’s been an active shortboarder since the mid-’60s, still travels halfway around the world to surf, and remains the only surfer to win U.S. titles on all three coasts; a true inspiration to the sport.
