Everyone finds themselves on the road at one point in their life. Every new life experience leaves us at the mercy of the community in which you choose to reside.

Korak Tinoco exemplifies someone that lives by the principles laid down by generations before him. Give respect where respect is deserved. Stay humble. And when it’s your turn to go they better see the color of your fins.

With Venezuelan roots, Korak has found himself immersed in the welcoming community that is Oceanside, California. A daily fixture at the pier, Korak makes it a point to be a positive and influential community member in and out of the water. From showing local groms the ropes to putting in long hours in the stacks at Cal State San Marcos, Korak always makes time to make it down the Ho-Chi Min before the rest of San Diego can think twice.

Tune in to the clip above to see life “Through The Eyes of Korak Tinoco”.
