There are so many people that buy the surf threads, consume their daily dose of Stab Magazine videos, and consider themselves a part of surfing's alternative culture, but few truly live and embody the lifestyle like Troy Mothershead.
The Ventura-based surfer lives at the crossroads of two opposite, but passionate worlds, the street and the beach.

He has a style that is inspired by the world he lives and engages in while on his surfboard and skateboard.
