    Necia Snow learned to surf in Santa Cruz 9 years ago and moved to San Diego shortly after. She loves sharing "The Stoke" and learning from adaptive surfers who she has coached over the years. The ocean holds some of her favorite memories and she's stoked to be a part of the YeeW Crew.

    My name is Braden Haynes. I'm 16 years old and born & raised in Encinitas, CA. I started my surfing journey 3 years ago. I've been riding Rat Surfboards for almost 2 years now and there's no end in sight! D St. is my favorite wave because of the barrels and the rampy air sections it brings! But If you don’t see me out in the water you might see me fishing along the beach or skating at the local park!
