Been surfing for millions of years now. Attended Dino U (“the first institution of higher learning, well before the University of Karueein, learned woodworking skills and used them to make a surfboard”). Together with Santa Cruz, the only survivors of the Ice Age. Used his surfing skills to surf their way out. Taught the first humans how to surf. Knew it was great fun, but never predicted just how popular surfing would become worldwide. Looks forward to watching Olympic surfing every 4 years after Japan. Still finds his short arms an obstacle to paddling out; Santa Cruz is not much help, preferring to be perfectly content to sit and find the warm spots on their surfboard.
Mantra: “Back in the Ice Age, we had waves you wouldn’t believe” Home Break: Rincon in Puerto Rico Fave Surf Spot: Really big waves, so Cyclops, Teahupo’o, Nazare, Jaws—“having jet skis get me out to the top of waves really helps me overcome my short arms for paddling” Bust Out Move: “Hard to believe given my size, but I’m pretty dainty walkin’ the nose” Fuels up on: Any nut, though I love white macadamia nut cookies whenever I can get them Best Surf Memory: “I have two—surfing my way out of the Ice Age and teaching the first human to surf” Best Beach Buds: Santa Cruz, Teahupo’o Tiki, Hossegor Hank, Donegan Doolin, and Surf City Sally When Not Surfing: “Going to the gym—just love the treadmill and bicycles” Advice for groms:“Learn to surf—there is a special connection with the ocean and its waves”
Invented by Cal Tech grad, Dr. Wave. While Dr. Wave might have tackled any of the world’s problems, he turned to developing metals that would not rust in salt water. Soon turned his brilliant intellect to inventing the perfect surfing robot, developing special sensors to detect perfect waves and create awesome surfing moves. Named robot H-20, code name Oscar, moved to Hanalei, Hawaii, to program Oscar to surf. There Hanalei Hawaii Oscar christened H2O; Dr. Wave thought that fit much better than H-20. Became friends with Waikiki Woodie and Curl. Realized H2O needed a surfing companion; used Curl as his model for Rusty.
Mantra: As Dr. Wave says, “The best way to predict your future is to invent it!” Home Break: Hanalei, Hawaii Fave Surf Spot: The Arctic and Antarctica—“cold doesn’t affect me at all, so I can surf both of these; and Rusty just loves playing with the polar bears and penguins!” Bust Out Move: Aerial drop into a Green Room tube, which I love doing at Nazare, Portugal Fuels up on: A special oil that Dr. Wave invented that prevents me from rusting Best Surf Memory: My first Green Room tube at Pipeline, really turned my bolts Best Beach Buds: Waikiki Woodie, Curl, and Aussie Alice When Not Surfing: Tightening my bolts Advice for groms: “Surfing is all about sensing that perfect upcoming wave”
Abducted a sheep on first Earth visit. From Bahthoven’s brain waves, discovered surfing on Earth. Attended University of Mars but could not find research on surfing. Still fascinated with surfing, returned to Earth. Mistook Donegan Doolin’s green hair for a fellow Martian, soon learned otherwise. Began practicing surfing right after. Found that Bahthoven was a great assistant in his efforts. His time in outer space helped him advance quickly; he appears to just glide across the waves effortlessly. Tries to teach Promethei Paula to glide the waves; says it will help her surf on Mars, likes to tease her he already has, and it really is a blast without gravity!
Mantra: “If I can surf, so can you!” Home Break: Area 51—“makes me feel like home on Earth!” Fave Surf Spot: Promethei Terra—“until Promethei Paula gets there, I’m the only one to ever surf it!” Bust Out Move: Glide and curl—“people tell me it’s out of this world!” Fuels up on: Moon pies Best Surf Memory: Promethei Terra on Mars Best Beach Buds: Promethei Paula, Voss Victoria, Long Beach Larry, and Donegan Doolin When Not Surfing: Flying my UFO through the skies, drives the Air Force crazy Advice for groms: “Don’t be foolish—even I wear sunscreen!”
Grew up Cocoa Beach. Sumatra Sam taught her to surf. Loved surfing at dusk, especially when launches from the Cape could be seen from the surf. Dreamt of being an astronaut from a young age. Attended Air Force Academy, worked hard, became an astronaut. Yearns to be the first surfer to surf Earth and Mars. Her love of surf earned her the nickname Promethei after the Mars ice glaciers from fellow astronauts and surfers. Adopted Alberta, granddaughter of Albert, the first chimp in space; happiest when Alberta joins her surfin’ safaris. Kids that she would love to see NASA renamed the National Aeronautics & Surf Administration.

Grew up Polynesia, taught to surf by Rincon Rex. Likes to claim he was the first human to surf. Claim is widely disputed; Rincon Rex says he taught many humans in Polynesia to surf well before he taught Teahupo’o Tiki. Moved to Hawaii, went to University of Hawaii. Joined surfing team. Became good friends with Waikiki Woodie; Teahupo’o Tiki is Costa Rica Rick’s godfather. Likes to surf with a mask inspired by Kanaloa, says it gives him special powers that make his surfing moves even more awesome. Found Toucan Tiki who tells him endlessly, "The Bird is the Word," on a Costa Rican trip with Rincon Rex. Loved that Toucan was naturally as colorful as his mask. Together they are often called the Tiki Twins.
Mantra: “Everyone has a surf mate, if you’re even luckier, a twin; take time to find yours” Home Break: Honolulu Fave Surf Spot: Teahupo’o Bust Out Move: Closeout Re-entry Fuels up on: Pineapple, lilikoi, chicken long rice, lomi lomi salmon, and a lot of cereal, especially for Toucan Tiki who seems to have a bit of a sweet tooth Best Surf Memory: “The first time Toucan Tiki and I were called the Tiki Twins—I just knew we were a great team and was so happy to have others see our chemistry on the surf” Best Beach Buds: Toucan Tiki, Rincon Rex, Waikiki Woodie, Aussie Alice, Surf City Sally When Not Surfing: “Convincing people I was the first human to surf (though they are never convinced)” Advice for groms: “Never be afraid to take off your mask and be yourself”
Grew up Norway. Wanted to surf but thought ocean waters just a bit too cold. Discovered river surfing and found her niche (and slightly warmer water). Attended Valhalla University, came across her Pegasus on a river surfing trip. Named her Bulken and soon had a great companion for her surfin’ safaris. Explores river surfing worldwide. Mythical in her surfing abilities, has surfed the Amazon and every river in Scandinavia. Still trying to conquer all 22 miles of Severn Bore in Wales, has surfed its entire length in segments, but never in one continuous flow.

Mako P.I. has one job—to take a Mako-sized bite out of injustice. Mako and his sizzling sidekick, G., protect Panama Bay from pollution and bullies (wave hogs). When not fin deep investigating stuff, they can be found sneaking through the Panama Canal to protect the east and west coasts of North and South America.

Legendary explorer of the seas. Fascinated when she saw people surfin’ on waves above her when off Laguna Beach; had to figure out how to surf. Her life changed when she found a copy of Francis Bacon’s New Atlantis. Traveled to Bensalem but found little surf in Pennsylvania. Headed for Hawaii, befriended Astra, a local unicorn on Maui. Fortunately, Astra knew where they could find some longboards, and together, they learned to surf. Found the North Shore a bit challenging; Luna and Astra prefer gentle sloping beaches all around the world.
Mantra: “Always aim to have fun in the water, even if you’re just flapping about” Home Break: Atlantis Fave Surf Spot: Gentle sloping beaches with long rolling surf Bust Out Move: “I’m a mermaid and can do ’em all!” Fuels up on: Plankton, seaweed, and when Astra returns from a bakery on land, clam cookies!
