With a very quick and aggressive style, this goofy footer is one of the island’s most recognizable surfers receiving extensive exposure throughout the surf media. From the print media to the digital domain and even in critically acclaimed movies, Icah has stamped his presence as one of the region’s leading and most recognizable surfing athletes, travelling and competing throughout the world and earning himself a few stellar competitive results and fans along the way.

To top it all off Icah is also a brilliant scholar and holds a Bachelors Degree in Information Technology with a major in Enterprise computing… oh yeah… and a certificate in Video production… which will come in handy when he is working on his next feature.
