David Kinoshita's Ambassador Profile


David Kinoshita

Surfing Ambassador

  • Hometown: Tokyo, Japan
  • Resides: Katsuura, Chiba, Japan

Born to a Japanese father and a Danish mother, David found his way to surfing at the age of 16. Grooming his style in the waves of Kamakura, he was soon traveling around the globe to compete on the ASP World Longboard Tour. A well-known activist in the Japanese surf community, he now speaks out on issues ranging from nuclear power to coastal construction and ocean pollution. He’s surfing full-time these days, and says he’s happiest when riding “anything from knee-high to double overhead.”
