HISTORY

Posted: November 11, 2010 at 5:39 pm

 Born in 1980 in South Africa, Dre was a local grom from North Durban Beach. He left school to go Pro by the age of 15 and planned his assault up the bodyboard ranks with his first season on the Northshore of Oahu. His performance in his first Pipe Comp was outstanding and his debut was the most impressive of any grommet to date. He surfed fearlessly and with a mop of blond hair and a mouth full of braces in one heat he scored a 10 out of 10 ride. By the time he was 17 he had won his first World Title then backed it up the next year winning two crowns back to back. Dre created history as the youngest World Champion ever . As the years passed Andre  built up a reputation as a big wave specialist. His wipeout at Teahupo was  legendary during the 2000 Tahiti Skins.Today Dre still travels the world bodyboarding hard and still pushing the limits   Pipe carve late 90′s photo Stroh
