Who They Are
Nationally ranked lifeguard and co-founder Cliff Skudin has conquered the massive swells of Outer Reefs Hawaii and Nelscott Reef during professional competitions. His business partner and brother, Will, is a four-time contender in the Billabong XXL Global Big Wave Awards. Their aquatic family history does not stop there, however. Among the ranks at Skudin Surf are three other amphibious Skudins—including a synchronized swimmer and a trained EMT—as well as a handful of instructors, lifeguards, and pro surfers who have been embraced by the family. Skudin Surf has been featured in a number of publications, including the New York Times.
Surfing, it seems, is much more than a mere sport to the Skudins. It’s also a free-spirited form of therapy. Brothers Cliff and Will launched the non-profit Surf For All to bring the sport to kids with autism, cerebral palsy, and visual impairment, among other disabilities. They also partner with Wounded Warriors to provide lessons to military members, and provided assistance with rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy.
