Jono Heath - Vertigo Surf Owner

Jono Heath

The founding father of Vertigo Surf. Jono is just as at home on the snowboard as the surfboard, in fact give him anything thats remotely shaped like a board and he will ride it. His personal board quiver expands at a rate of 3 to 4 boards a year. Jono’s desire to get amongst it and pick the dodgy line has endeared him to his mates and locals alike. If you see someone taking off deep and getting a hiding or barely making it, chances are its Jono.
