Right off, I should mention that I am probably biased in my fondness of this little Surfer. I am a product of two Californias (The US State and Baja California in Mexico). I have spent a great deal of my life at the beach and in the surf. In secondary school, lunch was a short walk to the sand; my high school had surfing for Phys Ed; I currently spend most of my free time shooting surfers or waves and I don’t have any of the other surfer minifigures, so I am seeing him with fresh eyes.
Overall I love this figure, his farmboy Luke Skywalker hair and the smirk on his face will earn him a permanent spot in my camera bag. His wetsuit has some nice detail on the arms and the little red curl on his chest is a nice touch. While mine had some sloppy printing issues, the shark surfboard is pretty cool and I can’t wait to see it paired with the earlier series Shark Suit figure.
There are only three figures from this series that I must have and the Professional surfer was at the top of the list, so thank you very much for allowing me to review this awesome little dude here in California.
