Martin Potter

martin-potterNicknamed “Pottz” and “Eggy Potter”, Martin is a British born surfer who was educated in Durban, South Africa. Considered the best “free-surfer” of his generation, Potz displayed immense talent, but lacked the consistency in the era of 25-plus event tours. He forever silenced the critics in 1989 by winning the world title. Pottz redefined competitive surfing by performing risky aerials moves and helped lead the way for a new form of competitive surfing which is now standard on the pro tour.
