Roy and Sean Johnson are the original night riders. While most surfers chase the sun, the father and son duo are fueled by twilight, surfing under the stars. Sean grew up in Malibu, surfing on homemade boards that his dad shaped for him. Using discarded or broken surfboards that Roy found on the beach, Roy’s innovative designs helped formulate his son’s surfing experiences. Roy’s latest design, LED surfboards, enables Sean to beat the crowds and hit the waves after dark. With only the stars and a tricked-out board to guide him, surfing has never been so Zen.
