Billabong SA events and team manager, Grant Beck could probably take out a few of his team riders in competition. When he isn’t working, he can be found charging Supers when there is swell or hanging out behind the lens capturing epic pics or compiling footage for his next creative edit. Be it on a longboard or a shortboard, the goofy foot shreds hard and is well deserving of a spot on our rank of underground rippers. Meet our latest surf ninja, Mr. Beck!
