It’s impossible to classify Joel Tudor into any single generation. He’s a mold of them all in some way, shape, or form. There might not be a person on earth who rivals Joel’s experience riding waves along with his wealth of knowledge about surfing’s history, which he strongly believes is a lifestyle and not a sport. He’s a multi-decade staple at Pipeline, a veteran black belt in jiu-jitsu, and was influential in crafting a movement against “high performance longboarding” which faces borderline extinction in this day and age.
