Tanner and Levi Prairie are a brother, surfer, shaper, musician duo based out of Costa Mesa, California. When we think Blackies, we not only think Alex Knost, but we also think of these dudes. Tanner has always been one of the best, most reliable shapers in the Costa Mesa area and you can just about see him in the lineup everyday rain or shine. Levi has had a long history of doing music projects including his most well-known band called “Gantez Warrior”. They’ve recently started they're own surf club called, Costa Mesa Surf Club, along with a new board label “DASH,” where Tanner whips up traditional yet contemporary shapes. Its a place where all their friends can meet and hang in between surfs; quite a fun little environment for all the CM boy. These brothers truly do respect the hell out of each other, which is rare for a competitive duo such as they are. This short sums up both of their surfing styles, and overall personality traits.
The two are a sight for sore eyes in the contemporary world of macho-freakout wave riding, drawing experimental, highly polished lines on anything from knee high crumblers, to double overhead pits. Open your mind, and tap yourself into a tasty dose of "Brotherly Love".
