Jeff Johnson



Jeff Johnson grew up as a skateboarder landlocked in Danville, California, and moved to Hawaii as soon as he graduated high school.  He lived on the North Shore of Oahu for fifteen years.  A self taught writer and photographer, Jeff has combined these two talents to chronicle his experiences.  His stories and photographs have appeared in the The Surfers Journal, Surfers Path, Surfer, Surfing, Alpinist and Outside Magazine.

His first book, Bend to Baja: A biofuel powered surfing and climbing road trip, was published in 2005.

His latest project, 180° South: Conquerors of the Useless, is a documentary film and coffee table book published in the spring of 2010.

Jeff now resides in Ventura, California where he works full-time for Patagonia, Inc. as a staff photographer, writer, and also assists with product development.  He divides his time between the mountains and the ocean.
