Olympic Surfing Coach - 2020
Surf pro Magnum Martinez began his career at 15 when his brother pushed him into his first wave. Despite a 45 minute commute to the nearest beach, Martinez fell in love with competing and surfing barrels. He won the first gold for Venezuela in an ISA Masters contest in 2012, and was featured on the cover of Surfer magazine. Now a surf coach, Martinez takes a holistic approach to teaching, believing that athletes must spend time in the gym, on a Carver Skateboard, and in the kitchen to be successful. He practices this himself to continue to grow as an athlete.
