Within a year of learning how to ride the waves of the ocean, Lauren was rewarded a slot on the US Surf Team which opened the doors of travel and several competition conquests. Throughout her teen years, she spent summers as a counselor/instructor at an overnight surf camp in California where she became the icon for Gidget apparel and lifestyle. After high school, Lauren attended and surfed for UCF, claiming several East Coast championship titles landing her a sponsorship with Ron Jon Surf Shop. Through team excursions, she became a spokes model for American Wave Machines which showcases innovative standing wave technology. Today, she judges contests up and down the east coast as well as directs the AAU National Surfing Championships.

Meet the Pros!
Todd Holland began an impressive competitive career at an early age. He earned a position on the NSSA National Team for five years where he was coached by the best, Ian Cairns and Pete Townend. These experiences lead him to the height of his amateur career winning several East Coast and National titles leaving him a direct path to professional surfing, finding himself with Rookie of the Year, OP Pro, Coke Classic, and Pepsi Surf the Edge titles and familiarizing himself in the elite top 16 on the ASP World Tour. Since retirement in ’97, he still rips the lip off anything and continues to compete and dominate in local events. His curiosity of board development lead him to his new hobby of shaping boards for Florida’s powerless waves, which prove successful with a win on his own shape at the Slater Brothers Invitational and a Florida Shape Off title. Today, up and coming surfers in the amateur ranks utilize Todd as their coach to train them for competition strategy in hopes to gain titles of their own.
