Latronic, Mike

Industrious surfer and surf-media impresario from Sunset Beach, Hawaii. Latronic was born (1964) in Yonkers, New York, and began surfing at age nine after moving with his family to Laguna Beach, California. Three years later the family moved to Oahu’s North Shore, and within five years Latronic was one of the hottest young guns at Velzyland and Sunset; in 1981, while still in high school, he earned an impressive cameo in the surf film Crystal Eyes.
