Alex Leon grew up at Cronulla surfing Shark Island and soon grew a taste for powerful waves. Inspired by the likes of Dave Ballard, Matt Percy, Wazza and Nugget young Alex learned that unless you were going to takeoff and pull into the heaviest pits the Island had to offer you might as well surf somewhere else or face the wrath of the locals who didn’t tolerate blow-ins in the lineup. These days Alex runs the Shark Island Challenge. Photo of Alex below surfing another of Cronulla’s heavy reef waves by Macca.
