Who are you ?

My name is York Van Jaarsveldt I am 18 year old professional surfer from a small town in South Africa in Cape Town, Kommetjie. I grew up surfing running left point breaks along the West coast of South Africa which lead to me being recognized by people which then pushed me into the competitive surfing scene on the East Coast of South Africa discovering my path as a surfer along the way. As I grew into a young adult I started venturing out into the big wave scene which lead to a new and exciting aspect of surfing.
