Charlie Smith

Charlie grew up in Cocoa Beach, Florida. He learned to surf at age 6 and began competing at 12 in the Eastern Surfing Association in central Florida. In 1978, Charlie came to Kauai with his brother Harry to surf and moved here 2 years later to make Kauai his home. Surfing for fun and competing in surfing contests on all islands in Hawaii has been his lifestyle ever since. Traveling to exotic locations in Bali and Java to surf are his passion and his favorite vacation destinations. His favorite surf spots include the North Shore of Kauai, Indonesia and the Pipeline in Oahu. Surfing with his brother Harry on Kauai and teaching all ages to surf is his daily routine. His other activities include kayaking and hiking. Traveling to Oahu and surfing in both the short and long board divisions of the Hawaii Amateur Surfing Association is a monthly routine at age 49.
