Born in Hawaii, notorious for its sandy beaches and surfing culture, Jack Hody Johnson could not hold back the his passion to take the surf board and go out for a few rides on the waves. Having a surfer father, Jeff Johnson, made it easier for the May 18, 1975 born singer to adapt to the culture since a very early age. By 10, Johnson had been sponsored by Quicksilver and was going pro when he entered the prestigious competition for surfers, Pipeline. He made it into the finals and became the youngest contestant listed then. In between his 'wet' time, Johnson also spared time exploring his other talent, playing guitar. He first picked the instrument at the age of 14 but never thought he would go serious in the music field. It took an accident to bent Johnson from, surfing, the career he thought he would go through, to playing music, the career that eventually got his name heard internationally.
