Karina Rozunko
Hang 10 with Birdie


Welcome back to Hang 10 with Birdie, where we catch up with friends Birdwell has made along the way, in and out of the water. This time around we are catching up with surfer Karina Rozunko. Growing up in San Clemente only a few miles from our home, she has an easy-going, distinctly Californian style, equally as enjoyable to watch in free surfs as when she’s winning contests like the recent Surf Relik event at Malibu. Karina’s style in the water has taken her from long point breaks in Australia to the warm waters of Sayulita, Mexico and back again. Add an enviable desire to travel, and always-palpable stoke, and it's easy to see why Karina makes an ideal ambassador for the sport.
