At the age of 12, Giovanni Douresseau's life consisted of the eight blocks of guns, gangs and violence surrounding his home in South Central Los Angeles. After being exposed to surfing during a youth summer program, he fell in love with the sport and met a mentor who helped him completely move past his rough upbringing. Ten years later, Giovanni is committed to sharing the life-altering gift of surfing that was given to him when he needed it most.
