Video: Brennan Rose Shreds Steamer Lane

It’s been said that the road to riches is paved with a higher purpose. Brennan Rose is an archetype of this maxim—”riches,” in this case, being the crown of the 2015 Santa Cruz Paddlefest Elite Surf competition and “higher purpose” being the pursuit of pristine SUP surfing ability. The Huntington Beach native turned Maui-man took that higher purpose to the steely waters of Central California and surfed his heart out at Steamer Lane for an indisputably deserved title. Here, he shows off the talent, drive, speed, power and flow that earned him the crown.
