Nakoa Decoite

  • Born: May 6, 1988
  • Hometown: Maui, HI
  • Stance: Regular
  • Favorite Wave: JAWS

Nakoa has recently taken the Big Wave scene by storm. Taking two paddles into 30 foot bombs, pulling off air drops, and cranking giant bottom turns on waves made for those immortal types or humans. Nakoa’s small wave ability is equally impressive as he can often be spotted throwing down clean slob grabs, one of his favorite tricks. On any given day that JAWS, Puerto, Mavericks and beyond may be breaking, just turn your head towards the line-up… Nakoa could be stroking in to another bomb.
