The O'Riginals - Darryl "Flea" Virostko 

Darryl "Flea" Virostko is one of the most legendary surfers to come from Santa Cruz. The Mavericks specialist grew up in a time where surf culture was at its localized height, bringing along a hard living, hard partying ethos that eventually led to serious drug addiction. Today, Flea is a recovering addict who operates his own rehab program (Fleahab), which teaches other patients how to surf and live an active lifestyle after getting clean.
