Shredding waves is second nature to Cory Lopez. One of the top pro surfers on tour for nearly two decades, Cory is known to insiders as a true storm chaser. Over the course of his decorated career, he has searched the world for places where weather patterns collide to make incredible waves. He even helped discover the now-legendary Skeleton Bay surf break in Namibia.
With a board under his feet and a relentless determination to outdo himself, he pushes the limits of what’s possible. Whether it’s fishing, free diving, surfing or storm chasing, he gives his passions all he’s got. They’ve led him through tubes and across countries.
From the moment he started surfing competitively at age nine, Cory has called the ocean home. And when he’s not shredding, you can find him on the shore, sitting around a fire with family.
