sean poynterSean Poynter began surfing at the age of 10 when his family made the move from Ohio to Florida. A talented athlete, surfing came naturally to Poynter, and it wasn’t long before his talent was recognized with sponsorships by some of the largest corporations in the industry – Volcom, Electric, Freestyle, and Globe, to name a few. Through these relationships, Sean travelled to photo-shoots and press events that would eventually be published in many popular industry magazines such as ESM, Mundo Rad, and Surfer. In the summer of 2009, Poynter was introduced to stand up paddling (SUP) and just a few months after catching his first wave on a stand-up board, he was jet-setting around the globe under the wing of SUP’s leading brand, Starboard, as their brand ambassador. During his travels Poynter had the unique opportunity to test boards and attend photo shoots for Starboard’s global ad campaigns in exotic locations including Bali, Thailand, and Hawaii. Now based in San Diego, Poynter represents a new breed of radical young stand up paddling athletes who are breaking boundaries in the sport. Poynter proves SUP can be taken beyond flat water and into the waves for electrifying surfing performances.
