#8 Tyler Fox - Founder of Santa Cruz Waves Magazine & Pro Surfer

Tyler Fox hales from the cold water and powerful waves of Santa Cruz, California. He has been fortunate enough to travel throughout Europe teaching kids to surf, mixed it up with the world’s best big wave surfers on the Big Wave World Tour as well as a recent 4th place finish in The Mavericks Invitational where he was the only goofy footed surfer to make the final. His success is not limited to oceanic activities but also extends to running his local business Santa Cruz Waves, a print and online media outlet serving Santa Cruz County and beyond. Founded by Tyler in 2010, Santa Cruz Waves acts as a voice for environmental, social, and sports news to a growing base of readers.

Tyler has always had a deep connection with the ocean and actively supports the efforts of Save The Waves Coalition to preserve and protect this resource so our future generations can enjoy it for years to come. His dedication to both his local community and the coastal communities abroad make him a perfect ambassador for Save The Waves Coalition.  Follow Tyler’s adventures on his Instagram @zorro_del_mar.
