Neil Evan Levin (17) and grew up in Mission Viejo, however he credits San Clemente for shaping who he is as a surfer. He first started when he was 7 years old, when his step-dad urged him into waves, he’s been at it ever since. His favorite thing about surfing is “Just the culture. Surfing has a unique way of dress and attitude around it that makes it a privilege to be a part of. It's one of the only sports you can truly build your life and personality around.”
He would go on to win his High School League Championships as a freshman and sophomore, becoming the Capo Coast League Champion. Some of his goals in surfing in the near future include to crush the Totally Crustaceous Tour and qualify for the global championship. He also aims to surf in the college circuit and feed into either QS events or ISA events. “2020 has surfing in the Olympics!”
His favorite flavor of Jones is Green Apple, which he tried for the first time in middle school and regularly ever since. He credits going to the “local candy store after school with friends to always try a new one” and “the idea that it doesn't just taste good, but it also has healthier ingredients” as why he chose to represent Jones Soda.
Outside of shredding up waves, you can find Neil playing guitar, writing in his blog, making YouTube videos and hanging out with friends.
