Austin is a true waterman who was born and raised in Montauk, New York. He grew up surfing on the beaches of Ditch Plains -- where he rose to a world-class level. After a career of professional surfing and traveling the world, he made his way back home and started his own surfing company, Austin’s Surf Club, which specializes in surf instruction for kids and adults on the East End of Long Island. His life’s greatest joys are his three beautiful children Jolie, Jude, and Reese. He takes great pride in teaching and growing with every individual he walks into the water with.
