When I first met Zach, he was a just a ghetto kid who worked behind the counter at a small surf shop in Oceanside. He seemed to be a really humble grom, but then I saw him surf for the first time and my outlook changed. How can a kid be so mellow on land and such an annihilator in the water?

In the last year I’ve seen this kid get the deepest barrels, throw the biggest buckets, and launch the biggest alley – oops I’ve ever seen. He’s not surfing for anyone but himself, and I guarantee there’s a smile on his face after every session. So next time you see some kid busting four – foot airs at the O – side beachbreaks, you can bet it’s Zach Rhinehart.¿Jamey Stone
