MORE ABOUT TANNER
Tanner Gudauskas is a professional surfer who views surfing as a creative expression more than a sport and is most proud of facilitating a surfboard drive that has raised hundreds of surfboards for under-served communities.
Now, with his competition days behind him, you’ll find him floating around in lineups with a huge smile on his face and a range of obscure surfboards under his arm. Instead of chasing points on tour, he’s turned his focus to giving back to the surf community through the foundation started with his brothers, Positive Vibe Warriors, which works to support youth water safety programs and emerging surf cultures in communities around the globe.
He’s spreading stoke and supplying boards to communities in Africa, Trinidad and Tobago, and Jamaica (just to name a few). He’s also helping support JUJU Surf, the foundation created by fellow Ambassador Mikey February.
