From the ghettos of Luqillo Puerto Rico David Santiago is no stranger to struggle. Driving him on a mission to break the stereotype. He travels the world with his surfboards and little luggage from competition to competition. Though this is a far cry from how his life started, it has become his daily grind. After the loss of his parents David became more driven than ever to compete and conquer his goals in professional surfing. Shortly after he acquired a solid sponsorship offer from Adrenaline Lifestyle, which opened the door for more travel. Along the way he has developed a strong name based on his character and loyalty. Recently David Santiago has joined the L.I.E. team and is currently on a surf tour hitting hot spots like Southern California, Hawaii, and Virginia Beach as well as others. If you see a ripper out in the water with shoulder long salt and sunned out dreads shredding, call out “Vampiro” if you get a head turn its likely David’s in the water.
