Julian Sekon, a.k.a. Sunset
Julian Sekon has many talents. On the modeling runway in Brazil, at the local gym, and in the water, he’s a standout. Julian works hard at whatever he desires. After getting a little burned out on the surf scene, Julian disappeared to Brazil for a while to find his true passion in life. When he had returned, you could tell he’d found it, and it was surfing in the cold waters of S.C. I think I’ve seen him in the water almost every day since then.
Why’d Julian go to Brazil? He said he needed to take a break from everything. The whole experience has helped him learn a lot about life and has improved his surfing.
I remember when we were groms, he used to push me and the other groms every day. He’d give us shit if we wouldn’t paddle out on the big days, get us psyched up for contests, make us crack it in the morning, and heckle us about the flaws in our surfing style so we’d get better. When I was twelve, I had a huge, wide stance. Julian gave me so much shit about it, until one day he scraped all the wax off of the upper part of my board, and made me go surf. At the time I thought he was being a bully, but now I thank him for it. He’s a great motivator. It’s good to see Julian back in the water more psyched than ever.¿Omar Etcheverrysuch a early age, it’s refreshing to see that he still retains so much stoke.¿Nelly
