Originally a Long Reef boy, Damien Warr moved to Yallingup in Western Australia after falling in love with it following a trip with Ozzie Wright. Damien started tow surfing in 1996 after a four-month trip to Hawaii where he worked in a surf shop when he wasn’t in the water. His father had been using jetskis and riding waves 10 years prior to then, so he was really familiar with the perfect conditions.
Aside from just tow-surfing, Damien loves every part of the sport, “I still love all aspects of surfing and being in the ocean, whether it’s riding a mal or an old single fin, stand up paddle boards, foils or my short boards. Being in the ocean always makes you feel good; I guess it’s a form of meditation for me. Other than that on a work front, I am living and working on an amazing vineyard property managing chalet accommodation.” Damien is nominated for the “Biggest Wave” award at the 2012 Billabong Global Big Wave Awards.
