ENCINITAS, Calif. -- In 2008, Brent Stephens decided to expand his passion for surfing into the Encinitas community by pairing up with the city to run surf programs throughout the summer.
The community clearly loves the program. Just last summer over 500 kids participated in the surf camp. Children ages 5 to 8 can attend the Little Groms Surf Camp while those 9 and older can receive a more excelled experience.
Along with the camps, Stephens owns and runs Concept, a specialty surf Shop in Encinitas. Through the shop, the 40-year-old continues to give back by sponsoring local surfers and helping them find other sponsors and funding needed in order to compete.
