Having been raised on the diverse wave selection of Ventura County, CA, the Ojai-born Quinten is a humble, well-rounded surfer with a knack for progressive style and barrel riding. “Q” likes to mix things up with surf foiling, kitesurfing and just about anything that keeps him in the water, regardless of the conditions.
