Mike Cianciulli

Mike prides himself on being an adventurer, foremost. But also a traveler, surfer, writer and producer. His passion for storytelling spawned while drafting journal entries and obscure e-mails documenting his search for waves across 34 countries (and counting). His writing has appeared in various international publications – both print and online. Recently, Mike wrapped up a seven-year stint as Managing Editor at Surfline.com, the world’s largest surf-related website. A native to Florida, he has gear stashed on Oahu’s famous North Shore and a cottage in Santa Barbara, California, although he frequently lives out of a backpack somewhere along the open road.
