Paulie is a young buck who got his start with SUMMERTIME based upon his impressive showing at staff tryouts.  Chop-hopping his way from the pier to 8th, he managed to out-hustle other hopefuls who were on 8 foot softies while using his 5’5″ shortboard.  While he’s still a young gun, Paul is a talented surfer and a gentleman on land.  This kid has a bright future ahead of him!
