Leo Harrington

I was raised in Malibu, California where my passion for the ocean came to life.  Since childhood, countless days have been spent surfing, diving, and training. Today, I work in the motion picture industry providing water safety, surf coordination, and aquatic stunts. I am professional surf instructor, certified lifeguard, and President of a non-profit called THERAsurf


Westward Marine and Surf Co. was created with the goal of supporting individuals and companies in accomplishing their specific needs in the aquatic world.  WMS fuses my experience as a professional surf coach with my career in water safety.
