Mikey February

Mikey February qualifying for the World Tour is about a country gradually becoming what Nelson Mandela envisioned so many years prior. Mikey’s qualification isn’t just about a black person making it to the greatest show in surf. It’s about a country that’s healing. It’s about Nelson Mandela’s vision of achieving equal opportunity for all coming to fruition. It’s a triumph over circumstances. It’s starting your own ad agency when the rule of law stands against you. It’s believing in a dream and following it with reckless abandon. Mikey February is a testament to that.
