Home Town, Sennen, Cornwall
From growing up in the deepest depths of West Cornwall, to travelling the globe in search of surf; Mike Lay has carved out a life that is intrinsically linked with the rhythms of sea.
Whether surfing, lifeguarding or writing, it is an ever present companion that has shaped his life and career.
Despite being one of the most talented longboarders in the world, forging a path as a free-surfer in modern times is no easy feat; the competition being nearly as fierce as competitive surfing itself. How Mike does this, however, is by being one of the most human and personable people in and out of the water. A curious mind with a passion to better understand and share the environment that has shaped him.
We’re fortunate to have Mike as part of the Finisterre family, anticipating and supporting his future endeavours.
