Takes One to Know One: Leo Fioravanti and Kanoa Igarashi

Leo Fioravanti and Kanoa Igarashi don’t have a “standard” life compared to other 16 year olds. For starters, they don’t go to day school, they travel the world … and they’re pro surfers. On a recent surf trip to Kanoa’s native Japan and Taiwan they explain what it’s like to be living the dream.

As they’re on tour for most of the year and travel shooting photos and video during free surf trips in between, sometimes at a moments notice, they can pack for a trip with their eyes closed.

We asked Kanoa about his travel essentials to make packing for your next surf trip that much easier.
