Championship Tour surfer Connor O’Leary talks about his unlikely and inspiring road to getting (and staying) on tour. He looks back at his rollercoaster career so far, from starting out as a surf shop kid and surf school instructor to his quick rise through the Qualifying Series and winning Rookie of the Year to falling off tour and battling back. He breaks down his family history, his mom’s competitive surfing career, growing up in Cronulla as a multicultural kid, and representing both Japan and Australia on his jersey. He also touches on the rise in performance level since his rookie year, inspiring the next generation of surfers, finding confidence and being present in the moment, and his desire for more lefts on tour.
