20 Under 20: Dillon Perillo

 You will not find 17-year-old Dillon Perillo longboarding First Point Malibu, nor will you see him raging on the Sunset strip. Growing up on the Malibu coast, things can go either way for a young surfer but Perillo has kept his head and board going in the right direction. He splits his time between the Bu and Oxnard so he gets a good variety of high quality waves throughout the year. His hard work paid off with a 3rd place finish in Explorer Mens at Nationals earlier this summer. Dillon has another year at Malibu High but says that after that, “I want to try the WQS and travel as much as I can.”
