Randy Rarick, the co-founder of the Triple Crown of Surfing, has announced his full retirement from professional surfing activities.
Rarick was born in 1949 in Seattle, but at the age of five he was already living in Honolulu with his family. At ten, Randy stood up on a surfboard for the first time.
The young American won junior contests and nearly made the finals of the 1970 ISF World Surfing Championships. In the 1970s, Rarick traveled the world and surfed everywhere.
