Frankie Soares is a surfer from Orcutt, CA. He lives in the small ocean town of Shell Beach, and enjoys surfing in places such as Jalama, Rincon, and Ano Nuevo. He starting surfing when he was in 8th grade (he even remembers the date) after grabbing a board from his garage and going out on his own. He quickly fell in love with surfing, and it sparked a new passion as well as a new chapter in his life. His biggest influence in his sport is surfer Dane Reynolds, and the furthest he has traveled is to Hawaii, which was in turn his favorite. He surfs on the concrete, and flies on the water. Holding back is not customary, and he surfs with speed and style. He stays motivated by his friends and family, and keeps his energy focused on skating and surfing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
