Dean originally came from inland Conneticut in USA and never surfed until the family moved to Australia. They set up home at Cronulla and before long Dean took up bodyboarding and became  part of the local Shark Island crew hanging out with Doug Robson and Bret Young. He learnt fast and was soon pulling into the heaviest pits with his friends. At the Cronulla Point Classic held in the late 80′s he impressed many with his go for it charging and placed well against many more established pro’s. A  few years later the Harrell family moved back to Conneticut and Dean now land locked was forced to hang up his flippers. Below “Conneticut” hooking into a fine Island wrap photo Stroh late 80′s.
