Not Quite Pro Feat. Jeremy Carter

Paddle out at Lowers on any given Tuesday, and even during the presumed "school hours", you'll find thirty-plus groms doing stupidly impressive surfing on the inside. These majority of these kids, whose surfing abilities were deemed worthy of forgoing a classroom education, will not make it as professional surfers. This sport is a numbers game and there's just not enough money for 400 tow-headed air-rev specialists. 

Jeremy Carter grew up in San Clemente alongside Kolohe, Luke, and Crane-o. He competed in all the NSSAs, had a slew of helpful sponsors, and surfed well enough to turn heads but not quite well enough to make a career out of it. So what'd Jez do? He went to college, got a degree, and has since bounced around a few jobs in the industry. Hardly a bad life, and goddamn, can the kid still surf or what? Maybe "going pro" ain't that important after all.
