FEATURING

LOU
HARRIS

Born and raised in New York, Harris is a self-taught surfer who questioned the stereotype, wanting to make the demographic of his favorite hobby look more like the world around him. Observing inner city youth who needed a constructive outlet, he founded the East Coast Chapter of the Black Surfing Association, and has since taught kids of all races and background how to have a positive relationship with the ocean right in their own backyard.

The paddle outs have drawn hundreds including world-class surfers, celebrities, and a wave of positive media attention.
