CHARLIE RAMIREZ


charlie ramirez My surf career did not start like most other pros. In fact I rarely competed as an amateur and the majority of my youth was spent on the asphalt skating rather than in the water surfing. My early childhood was spent skateboarding and by the time I was 11, I was considered good enough to be the youngest team rider for the elite Island Skate Team, fathered by shop owner Monty Smith. At the age of 17 I was a sponsored skateboarder by Ezekiel and Chocolate. In my early teens I started surfing, but it was not until high school when I became to take it more serious. I went to college in Miami where I lived beachfront in art deco Miami Beach, a place that influence my art, and most importantly my skate-like surf style. Because of my skateboarding background and the minimal waves south Florida has to offer, I adapted and integrated my skateboarding into my surfing and suddenly became one of the first legit aerialist in and from Puerto Rico. In 2003 ...Lost made its first and only Surf Jam in PR. At this Surf Jam I approached ...Lost owner Mike Reola with a home made VHS demo and my first full page editorial in Mundo Rad Magazine. That night I was told I was one of the best east coast aerialists he had ever seen and immediately got sponsored and was on a plane the next month.
