Mike Lay - Cornwall, UK

There’s something about a person who seems to move along effortlessly. That’s is how Mike Lay lives his whole life. Cornwall, on the British Coast, isn’t exactly known for it’s heavy surf. Hence, Lay opted to ride a longboard early in his surfing life. Turns out he was pretty good at it - in fact, one of the best. As a teen, he competed and won accolades all over Europe.

And his dedication to more traditional logs landed him a spot at the very exclusive Duct Tape Invitational. Today, Lay is setting the bar for style on his side of the pond. Lay spends his time part Lifeguard, journalist and fulltime father and specially enjoys exploring his own backyard and region of the Atlantic.
