2017 Selection Committee
John Daniels is a true outdoors man! He’s constantly seeking adventure around the globe. John has traveled and competed in several surf competitions over the past 12 years. He was a top amateur in high school and then moved on to the WQS tour. This afforded him the opportunity to travel and surf some of the best waves in the world. John has always been a part of the local surfing community and has ran a surf camp every summer for the past 15 years.
He’s felt his calling is to Judge surfing and help inspire the next generation through instruction. He is still in the water weekly and always keeping an eye out for the next big swell. John continues to travel throughout the US, Mexico, and, occasionally, internationally. If he gets a day off from the beach, you can find him in the local mountains and deserts exploring new rock climbing areas. He hiked the tallest mountain in the contiguous US and spends his time backpacking and hiking the western States.
