Jared Mell went to school on the sand in Newport Beach. Literally.
Staring at the sea and coloring. Since those days of handball on the sand, he’s developed into the kind of longboarder you can’t take your eyes off for fear of missing something — he’s of those guys who is both spastic and poetic at once, taking traditional surfing and making it headbang a little.
Jared splits his time between Bali, Australia and Newport Beach, and he’s the kind of guy you wouldn’t be surprised to see floating through anywhere: Mexico, Paris, Morocco, Indonesia… “Oh, hey Jared.” And the best part about him: you never know what’s next out of his mouth. A genuinely spontaneous mind living on the fly.
