Meet team rider, Billy Marshall. He’s a 17 year old with an easy going persona and killer style. Billy’s 70s, “Lord’s of Dogtown” aesthetic is consistently reflected from his taste in music and apparel, to his surfing. Although, Billy’s sense of style is the kind to follow, it isn’t all he’s known for in the surf world. In fact, he’s known to be incredibly versatile in his surfing abilities. One of the most challenging things a surfer can be is both, a long-boarder and short-boarder. Billy is the dude who can seamlessly do both. Naturally, we wanted to know where his talents began and what his surfing preferences are…because who wouldn’t want to get to know the next Ando?!
