Kolohe Andino is a second-generation pro from San Clemente, California, who is set to represent the United States at the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games after qualifying through the 2019 WSL Championship Tour.
Kolohe won a record nine NSSA national titles as an amateur and qualified for the Championship Tour in 2012 at the age of 18. He signed huge deals with retail giants Target and Nike at the time, making him one of the richest rookies in history. Andino’s electric brand of surfing is a potent blend of acrobatics and aggression.
Kolohe Andino's Signature FCS II Fin
Sitting in the Accelerator family, Kolohe’s signature fin is suited to fast, explosive surfing in punchy waves.
The best way to describe Kolohe’s style of surfing is fast and explosive. He likes to push hard off the bottom and perform dynamic turns on and above the lip. The well balanced nature of the KA template facilitates this style of surfing perfectly.
“I can use my fin anywhere in the world, I get the perfect amount of drive and hold when I’m doing turns, and I can also get the tail free when I need to”
