From Boarding House Official Site
Click link above for more information on SunnySurfing legend Sunny Garcia brings five Triple Crowns, a world championship and a volatile temper to Boarding House: North Shore. It's hard to believe that with a professional surfing resume to rival anyone's that Garcia was once scared of the crashing surf.
Garcia was afraid of the ocean as a child in Waianae on the West Side of Oahu. At age 7, his friends talked him into trying to surf. "I couldn't swim. I was crying for my mom," Garcia recalls. Then he caught a wave, rode it and paddled right back out for another one.
Now the outspoken Garcia fears no wave and no competition as he takes his reckless will to win into sports such as snowboarding and dirt bike racing, which caused his latest injury. However his bravado sometimes causes him to "forget" to wear his knee brace out in the water. Garcia is a serious athlete, who spends a lot of time in the weight room and has a real sense of what he believes to be right and wrong.
