Justin Quintal world-famous long boarder & angler

Justin Quintal is many things. World longboarding champion. Surfboard designer. Storm chaser. Red drum slayer. But first and foremost, Quintal is the Trashgator. Born and raised on the Florida coast, Quintal’s proud of his East Coast roots. It’s where he learned to read swells, ride waves, and fish the tides. From the barrel of a wave to the bow of a boat, hit the water with Quintal in the video below.
