20 Under 20: Dane Zaun

 LA’s South Bay is a little bit off the surfing world’s radar even though it is smack dab in the middle of Southern California, has consistent rippable waves and has a bourgeoning crew of up and comers. Dane Zaun is working to make the South Bay known as a legitimate producer of fine surfers. He’s not only doing this at home with some stellar NSSA finishes but he’s also making a mark on the global scale as a member of the USA team and finishing 7th at the ISA World Junior Games this year against a stacked field of the world’s best.
