Korey Pohen: "Board sports just come natural to some people.”
Name: Korey Pohen
From: New York

For Korey Pohen it was easy to surf after years of skateboarding. “I think board sports just come natural to some people.”
One of his craziest experiences was off the coast of Indonesia.
“I was out in Indonesia last year off Sumatra, and [while] on a big wave face-planted onto the reef. My head is still numb a year later. I can’t feel my head here,” pointing to his head. “I didn’t go unconscious but my eye closed up. I was really scared that my face just fell off, so I was asking a lot of guys out there like, ‘Hey is my face on?’”
“I’ve spent two years in my life in Indonesia on the Sumatra. I lived in Central America for three years, Panama a year, Salvador two years. I was also living in the north shore of Oahu for a while.”
