Duran is the real deal. Born into a world-class surfing family and raised in North County San Diego his entire life, this guy has surfing in his DNA. Duran was professionally sponsored at the young age of 13 and went on to travel and compete all over the world as a young amateur. After years in the competitive circuit Duran decided to focus on his free-surfing career flight-hopping and filming throughout Mexico, Indonesia, & beyond.
