Noa Deane is one of our favorite anti-heroes. He doesn't fit in the classical assumption that competitive surfers are role models.

Noa lives and surfs according to his own nature. And that's what makes him one of the most exciting surfers on the planet.

Inspired by Christian Fletcher and Taj Burrow, Deane takes his board to complex new levels. Free surfing 1, competitive surfing 0.

The Chilean big wave surf break of Punta de Lobos and the idyllic Australian point break of Noosa have been officially declared the 9th and 10th World Surfing Reserves, respectively.
