|From S.C. down to TX. and Costa Ric|
Heyward Hardy lives in Charleston now, but his mother is from Walterboro, and he still seeks the waves for relaxation as much as the Atlantic will allow. Hardy’s journey began with 3 years of high school in Montana, and then he moved to Houston, Texas and worked for a landscape architect. Ends up his employer shared an appreciation for surfing and gave Hardy the consideration of extended time off from work for travel to Costa Rica.

“In South Carolina, there is not a lot of power behind the waves, so longboards are really the best bet,” said Hardy. “I ride a 9-foot performance longboard by Stewart now and Folly Beach is really the go to choice for most Lowcountry surfers. Lately the surf has been dead flat due to the hot weather, so we will watch and wait for the surf report to become favorable.”
