Last week we got an e-mail alerting us to a short Vimeo Video on Hurricane Leslie hitting the Outer Banks.  One of the surfers in the video was Michael Powell.  Well we wanted to know a little bit more about Michael.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up Ocean Isle Beach, NC which is in the deep south of North Carolina.

When did you learn to surf?  First surfboard?

When I was 11. A used 4’11″ Perfection.

 Heroes?  Who influences your surfing?

Christ. I enjoy watching Julian, Kolohe, Taj and John.

Where do you live now?

I live in Wrightsville Beach, NC.

Favorite surf spot?  Maneuver?

Cape Hatteras, NC. Cutting back.

Are you a contest surfer?  Traveler?   Sponsors and shout outs.

I have done some of the star series ASP events this year and climbed into the 150 range. I travel  with the focus being those contest.  A relationship with Reef has helped me pursue the dream of surfing and I am doing my best to keep that alive.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I would like to continue traveling and competing with more focus on video work.
