Justin Gregory is a surfer and outdoorsman living in Mission Beach, San Diego. After forced to buy a surfboard (one he broke) from a surf shop when he was just 7 years old, this "mistake" ended up being the spark that ignited a passion for the sport. This passion led him to live in San Diego and travel to destinations across Mexico and Indonesia. But if there are two things Justin loves it's an empty lineup and a good story... When he's not in the backcountry or patrolling the coast of Baja for waves you'll find him curating some of the best written pieces on the internet when it comes to surfing. His articulate shoot-from-the-hip writing style has been favored by many readers and we're stoked to showcase some of his work here in the HoStevie! Blog.
