Tyler Newton loves all things water. Surfing, fishing, or just playing around with friends and family. Born and raised in Kauai, the water has always been an integral part of his life. Like most water lovers, the passion was passed down from his parents. Together they spent his childhood hunting and fishing all over Hawaii’s natural playground, but the waves always called. He started to spend more and more time surfing, and then went pro in 2008.
Tyler’s confidence and skills let him catch some of the most notorious waves in the world, but his deep respect for the ocean keeps him grounded. Tyler has traveled to catch swells all over the world and has competed in many prestigious surf competitions, but his favorite place is the 7 mile stretch on the North Shore of Oahu where he spends his winters. During the summer Tyler can be found fishing and surfing in Kauai.
