Hailing from Lahaina, HI, Dusty Payne is currently climbing the world title ranks of the ASP and is currently among the Top 25. Payne has been an integral part of the Nixon family, as he battles his way toward the finals in every major surf contest. When he's not competing, Payne films for videos (e.g. Creepy Fingers, Modern Collective, Scratching the Surface with Julian Wilson, BS, etc.), plays golf, and rides his 5'6" dumpster diver in smaller fun waves. Payne is part of the newer generation pushing surfing today.
