Pete Mendia


Among the most renowned surfers in the country, Florida-based Mendia has been surfing professionally for more than 20 years. He is the epitome of the kind of raw and powerful talent that charges heavy conditions with finesse and confidence. Pete’s insatiable thirst to chase large swells puts him in heavy scenarios across the globe; yet he always looks as comfortable as he does while packing huge lefts on special occasions at home. He hails from West Palm Beach—just down the road from FiiK’s corporate offices—which comes in handy during typical Florida flat spells and when his Billabong-sponsored Mendia Boarding School is in session.

Although Mendia is a highly esteemed surf pro, he is also known as a devoted husband and father who strives to involve his family in his life as much as possible. Not surprisingly, his children share his talent and penchant for surfing, evolving into mini chargers. Whether he’s sharing his passion with his own children, at his boarding school or with his peers, Mendia promotes the concept that surfing is ultimately about having fun.

In addition to representing FiiK USA and Billabong, Mendia is also sponsored by Proctor Surfboards, Freak Traction, Zippo, Nomad Surf Shop, Fin-S, Electric, and WaveJet.
