Legends & Surfer Pets® Series 1
Legendary explorer of the seas. Fascinated when she saw people surfin’ on waves above her when off Laguna Beach; had to figure out how to surf. Her life changed when she found a copy of Francis Bacon’s New Atlantis. Traveled to Bensalem but found little surf in Pennsylvania. Headed for Hawaii, befriended Astra, a local unicorn on Maui. Fortunately, Astra knew where they could find some longboards, and together, they learned to surf. Found the North Shore a bit challenging; Luna and Astra prefer gentle sloping beaches all around the world.
Mantra: “Always aim to have fun in the water, even if you’re just flapping about”
Home Break: Atlantis
Fave Surf Spot: Gentle sloping beaches with long rolling surf
Bust Out Move: “I’m a mermaid and can do ’em all!”
Fuels up on: Plankton, seaweed, and when Astra returns from a bakery on land, clam cookies!
Best Surf Memory: Surfing by moonlight
Best Beach Buds: My unicorn Astra, Mako P.I., Aussie Alice, Bali Bobbi, and Hossegor Hank
When Not Surfing: Rescuing those lost at sea, telling tall “tails” about it, especially on her shell phone with Mako P.I.
Advice for groms:“Respect our oceans and don’t forget to come up and breathe!”
Grew up New Jersey, spent his summers on LBI learning to surf. Found out LBI stood for Long Beach Island though no one ever calls it Long Beach. Soon discovered there were lots of places called Long Beach, all of them with great and different surfin’ conditions. Vowed to make it his life’s work to visit every Long Beach in the world. Graduate of Drexel University with a degree in engineering, a Navy pilot, flew with the Blue Angels. His personal journeys take him to South America, Australia, South Africa, and throughout North America. Known worldwide for his patriotic surfboards.

Advice for groms:“Be adventurous—find surf where you don’t expect it; I had a great time surfin’ Lake Minnewaska in Long Beach and Lake Superior, both in Minnesota!”
Mako P.I. has one job—to take a Mako-sized bite out of injustice. Mako and his sizzling sidekick, G., protect Panama Bay from pollution and bullies (wave hogs). When not fin deep investigating stuff, they can be found sneaking through the Panama Canal to protect the east and west coasts of North and South America. Despite their intimidating and comical appearance, Mako and G. have become local heroes to the Panama groms and can be found giving surfin’ lessons when not on the clock. Loves to call Costa Rica Rick although G. dials their shell phone.

Grew up San Francisco and Marin County, her Mom and Dad started to teach her to surf at age 5. Became a top amateur along with her rival, Surf City Sally. Really blossomed when friends suggested she travel down the coast to Ghost Tree and Mavericks. Became famous for her courageous airdrops; nicknamed Mavericks (which suited her personality). Really smart, went to Stanford. With classmates, started some of the early tech firms. Now retired, still surfs every day; consults with start-ups (reminding her of what it’s like to be a grom their first day on a board).

When Not Surfing: “Sharing what I learned to help young entrepreneurs get their sea legs!”
Advice for groms: “Take school and learning as seriously as surfin’; with luck and hard work, you too can retire young and surf every day of your life!”
Was conquering waves at age 7 as a topflight amateur from Surf City on the Outer Banks where onlookers were already calling her Surf City Sally. Learned Huntington Beach held trademark for Surf City. Convinced her family to move to California where she fully developed her legendary surfin’ skills and rivalry with Mavericks Mavy. Discovered Bali Bobbi on a trip to “the Park” in Real, Quezon. Graduate of Pepperdine with degree in Marine Biology, still surfs every day. Plans to take a year off from work to train and compete for the USA Olympic surfing team.

Advice for groms: “Listen to your teachers and never, ever, ever stop learning!”
Costa Rica Rick’s Dad. Grew up surfin’ Hawaii, taught Rick his craft. Got his nickname from Waikiki and his old Woodie Wagon. Moved the family to Costa Rica when Rick was 12. Returned to Hawaii a decade later; couldn’t convince Rick to come (although Rick returns every year to surf Pipeline and Jaws with his Dad). First purchase back in Hawaii was an old Woodie Wagon, spent several years faithfully restoring it. Usually seen cruising around Oahu, boards on roof, his dog Curl hanging out the window. Together they’re always searching for great waves!

Best Beach Buds: “Curl, who lives with me; Aussie Alice, who lives nearby; and Costa Rica Rick, who I wish lived nearby”
When Not Surfing: “Golfing at Ala Wai—where else can you golf with a view of Diamond Head?”
