North Shore, Oahu
Fred Patacchia is a fast and powerful goofyfoot who was born and bred on the North Shore of Oahu. He's a former prodigy and NSSA Champ and was the 2005 ASP Rookie of the Year. He's an incredible tube rider at spots like Pipe and Teahupo'o and he's also got a wicked backhand honed from years smacking the lip at his home break of Haleiwa. Fred is super friendly and outgoing. He waves the aloha flag 24/7 and brings true Hawaiian spirit wherever he goes.
