Surfer of the Week -

TANNER VODRASKA

Age: 16
Hometown: Camarillo, California
School: Adolfo Camarillo High School: 11th grade; Favorite subject: English
Sponsors: Xcel Wetsuits, Lost Surfboards, Globe Brand, Scoscheinic, Revolution
Claim to Fame: In the day of a thrilling season opener for the 2020/21 Northwest Conference at world famous Steamer Lane, we were reminded of how awesome it is to see kids back in the jersey on the west coast after a year of no contests. Events were finally back in California and Tanner Vodraska would be the first to clinch the first win in the top level Open Mens division. In his return to competition, the 16-year-old from Camarillo was excited to get back in contest mode and it showed in his performance. From his round one opener through to the final, he won all of his heats in solid conditions at the Lane. I am stoked winning the first contest of the 20/21 season because there hasnt been a comp on the west coast in almost a year, Tanner said. The waves were sick and I couldnt wait to get out there in the water. It felt so good to be back in competition. Surfing and competition is in Tanners DNA. His dad Yari was a standout in the Gold Coast Masters division in the mid 2000s. Tanner identifies his father as the main man who has mentored him, laying the foundation for his son and educating him on the sport's fundamentals. I started surfing when I was 5-years-old with my dad and he has taught me everything I know today, Tanner said. At the contests, he still gives me tips and we come up with a game plan but he wants me to make my own decisions in the heats. Growing up around the Ventura beach breaks, it is no surprise that Tanner developed a progressive, creative surfing style looking up to some of the most talented and innovative aerial surfers in the sport such as Dane Reynolds, Eithan Osborne and Micky Clarke. I look up to them because they are the best, he said. I want to be able to do everything they do while Im surfing. Indeed, when Tanner paddles out everyone wants to watch because he will go for the loftiest airs and the most dynamic turns. This past weekend, he followed up the Steamer Lane victory with a runner up placing at NW stop number 2 at the Hook. He will hope to keep the momentum of his hot start going into the West Coast Regional Championships next week at Oceanside Pier! ** What do you like best about the waves at Steamer Lane? The Lane has a good right wedge off the rocks that provides a good air section and multiple turns. Age you started surfing: I started surfing when I was 5. My dad taught me everything I know to this day. Surf crew: My brother Talan, Jak Ziets and Jack Zoltan. Local spot: Ventura Harbor. Local heroes: Dane Reynolds, Eithan Osborne and Micky Clarke. I look up to them because they are the best and I want to be able to do everything they do in the water. Favorite pro surfers: Dane Reynolds because he has the best style and can do anything he wants to do when he surfs. If you could surf like anyone in the world who would it be? I would want to surf like Jack Freestone because he is super smooth and has good airs and turns. Fantasy superpower: To fly. Hobbies other than surfing: I like to skate, snowboard and ride bikes. Something people do not know about you: I skate goofy-footed and surf regular-footed. Dream wave: Snapper Rocks with no one out. Who has pushed your surfing the most? My brother Talan and my friends because we are always competing even when we are free surfing. Goals: To become a professional surfer or go to a good college. Thank yous: Thank you to my parents for always being there for me and pushing me to keep going!
