Bio

Hailing from the wave-rich town of Lennox Head, Australia, Adam Melling has been turning heads with his smooth style which bridges the gap between power and flare. Surfing waves like Lennox Point and being a drive away from the wave-rich Super Bank gave Adam the platform on which to improve and refine his ability to a point that he’s now one of the best in the world. After winning the 6-Star Cold Water Classic in Scotland in 2009 and finishing the season in fourth on the WQS, Adam qualified to join the best in the world on the ASP World Tour beginning in 2010. Since that time, he’s had an up and down ride, but continues to be considered one of the most dynamic surfers on Tour.
