my name is Bobo Tantog. I have been surfing since I was 10, so 20 years.
My favorite surf spots I like to surf at is Rock Point Left and Haleiwa
I have entered a lot of surf competitions. My biggest surf competition
accomplishment would have to be when I was 15 years old. I entered the
Quicksilver 4th Annual pro-division and I placed 2nd.
I have also been the Big Island Jr. Men’s champ for 2 years.
I have been sponsored by Gorilla grip, Local Motion, Pacific Vibration,
Quicksilver, and about 5-6 more surf shops.
One of the scariest moments in surfing was on Dec. 22nd, 1990.
I was surfing at Jocko’s on an 8’-10’ Hawaiian wave day. Then this 15’
wave came and shut down 10 feet in front of me. So I dove under to avoid
the wave. I was held under for what seemed like minutes. When I
surfaced, the next set came and I was held under for a lifetime.
Something brought me back up. I was so lucky to have air in my body, I
thought I was going to die.
