Surf Ninja – Adin Jeenes

Full of energy, this wave assassin is the kind of surf buddy every ripper needs. Whether it’s stormy 12-foot Vic Bay or a pap knee-high beachbreak, he’ll get you pumped-up to paddle out. Either that or you’ll force yourself to give it a go when you see how much fun he is having.

The Southern Cape local has ripped his way on to the cover of Zag (issue 34.1), through the barrels of his life at places like G-Land and Skeleton Bay, as well as into the friends list of just about everyone he bumps into along the way.

Meet this week’s Surf Ninja, Adin Jeenes…
