Longboarder Joel Tudor on Surfing and Fighting

Joel Tudor on the Art of Surfing, Fighting, and Style
By: Michael Hresko, FIGHTLAND
"In 1990, at the age of 14, Joel Tudor made surfing his life and went on to become one of the most accomplished Longboarders of his time. Today, at 37, Joel has extended his role of surf icon, and has added mixed martial artist to the list of mediums he dedicates himself to. Everyday Joel Tudor takes his kids to school, goes surfing, takes off his wet suit, and then puts on a gi and trains Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

"We visited Joel for a day in Solana Beach, California where he lives and owns his own jiu-jitsu academy called Surfight, located right across from the local surf-spot. “It’s a good thing surfing still pays the bills. Fighting is just my hobby,” he says as I walked into his beautiful home last week. I had heard that Joel had a great “how I got into martial arts” story, so I asked him right away how one of the world’s most well known surfers picked up combat sports."
