At 5'8" 170 lbs wet Mikala Jones may, pound for pound, be one of the surf sports heavyweights. His style is smooth. He's real mellow, so he can probably beat the crap out of you. He's a ripping surfer which must be pretty obvious as Mikala currently sports about 10 sponsors with some of the biggest names in the action sports industry, like Split, Dragon, Osiris, Town & Country, Matuse and Future Fins to name a few. You can see proof of his skills in many films like 'Under the Radar' and 'Shades of Bali'. Do yourself a favor
and see why this guy is so awesome. Learn from this Kahuna and be all that you can be.
