Watch”Portugal Clip” Starring John Mel

Video: Garrett Whittingham

John Mel has hops. This we know. The Mels have surfing in their DNA with deep roots in the Santa Cruz area, where early pioneers such as Kevin Reed, Darryl “Flea” Virostko and Shawn “Barney” Barron (RIP) first took it to the air. His unique flow gets one’s eyes wandering as he boosts another one across the screen. This video is loaded with little gems as John and Garrett Whittingham navigated through Portugal. We recommend you check it.
