Myles Padaca began surfing at age 11 on the Big Island at quality breaks around Kalapana. Volcanic activity in the late 80s/early 90s eventually consumed those spots and Myles relocated to the North Shore of Oahu to pursue a pro surfing career. Over the next 15 years he became one of the most successful and respected surfers and big wave riders to come out of Hawaii, winning the internationally coveted Vans Triple Crown of Surfing in the winter of 2001, and appearing regularly as an invitee to the Quiksilver Eddie Aikau. Today, Myles works with the Nike surf team and cultivates future world surfing champions through his company Progressive Surfing, utilizing his wealth of competitive and industry knowledge. He has been on the cover of every major surf publication and featured in the likes of Vanity Fair, Men’s Fitness, and Italian Vogue.
