The only thing that burns brighter than Morgan’s personality is perhaps his future. A standout student at Belmar Elementary, and later at Bio Tech, Morgan used his academic success to earn a scholarship to the University of Hawaii. Since then, he has carried on a long tradition of Jersey-bred college kids who charge the big waves of Oahu’s North Shore. In between class, Morgan makes his rounds surfing Sunset Beach, Rocky Point, and a few secret spots that we can’t talk about here, but come summer, you’ll find him surfing at dawn before taking his role teaching the next generation of future stars.
