Evan Geiselman Bio

With a smooth and explosive surfing style that has landed him in the number two spot on Surfer magazine's Hot 100 groms list two years in a row, young Evan Geiselman is one of a new band of teen surfers annihilating waves and redefining what's possible before he's old enough for a driver's license.

"I'm trying to do the most progressive stuff I can, but I want it to look effortless and powerful," Evan says.

Florida Family

Evan grew up in New Smyrna, Florida with his older brother Eric who also surfs pro. It's pretty much a surfer family as their dad Greg makes all their surfboards for the two boys. Eric was once attacked by a Great White Shark, but do you think that stopped these two adrenaline monkeys? Evan is now a sponsored surfer by Oakley sunglasses.

 

In March of 2008, Evan tore into his competition at the NSSA East Coast Nationals at Florida's Sebastian Inlet, leaving with victories in Open Juniors, Open Airshow and Explorer Boys - he even pulled down the highest single-wave score of the Open Juniors division. His performance earned him a record 12 NSSA East Coast titles.

Fame and Flattery

Now his name comes up in the same breath as Kelly Slater, but comparisons Evan doesn't take lightly. While flattered by the praise, Evan doesn't let the bigger picture detract his focus.

"I feel a little pressure, but that's more from me. I don't do it for anybody else. I'm just trying to surf the best I can and get better every time I surf."

Evan manages to cut through the hype with a simple philosophy: Be a better surfer every time you step on the board.

Hey! I have been in track and cross country for years! My opinion: Do what your heart tells you! If I was to choose, I would say track, but that's just me! :)
