James McGrath

Nickname: James

Date of birth: September / 20 / 1999

Motto: "Live everyday if it were your last"

Favorite spot: My favorite spot would have to be the left hand point break in Pacasmayo Peru! Clean surf in the morning, with 20 kts every afternoon! Perfect for goofy footers!

Sponsors: Cabrinha, NeilPryde, Lynch Associates

Disciplines: I mainly ride strapless as I have grown up surfing my whole life., I also enjoy foil racing which I have been pursuing for the last few years, and every once in a while you will catch me with a twin tip.

Favorite trick: My favorite trick would have to be front roll shuvits on a surfboard. I don't have them totally on lock yet, but it is a feeling like no other.

Accomplishments: I have a few podiums in different divisions throughout the years, but being able to travel the globe at such a young age has been my greatest accomplishment!

Favorite product: My favorite Neil Pryde product is the NEO mission top.

Something everyone should know about me is: I love making and creating videos and films about my travels, and what I experience! I will be restarting my Youtube this month so check it out (James McGrath)

Where you can find me the most time of the year: I enjoy filmmaking, surfing, fishing, diving, and anything outdoors!
