Sam George is a professional surfer, writer, director and screenwriter. A former competitive surfer, in 1983 George became a contributing editor at Surfing Magazine in San Clemente, CA, later becoming the magazine's senior editor. His monthly column "Caught Inside" ran until 1990, when he left Surfing and began work at SURFER Magazine. George worked at SURFER from 1990 to 1998, when he left the magazine to work on a book project and to help start and edit a free tabloid called SurfNews. He returned to SURFER as executive editor in 2000, a position he held until 2005, when he left the magazine to concentrate on documentary film projects. George has traveled extensively throughout his career, having explored the coastlines of over 40 different countries and is credited with the discovery of new surf breaks in West Africa, the Andaman Islands and Madiera. Still very active in the surf George continues to compete in standup paddle races and tandem events, usually with his wife Nia Peeples as a partner.
