More about Todd Kline
Todd was born and raised in South FL. This is where he developed the passion for fishing as a kid growing up in FL. As a teenager, Todd’s other passion was surfing and he began surfing more than fishing. Todd turned his surfing passion into a profession at the age of 18. He made a living surfing for 7 years competing around the world highlighted by 4 World Qualifying Event Wins. He then parlayed his surfing into a marketing position with his current sponsor at the time, Quiksilver, and rode that wave for 17 years finishing up as a Marketing Director. He now commentates for the broadcasts of the World Surf League Championship Tour Events. When not on the road, Todd loves fishing now more than ever. He says it gives him the same feeling he got at the age of 5 back in FL. That sense of escape and the connection with nature is why he began fishing and surfing. Similar to surfing, he loves competing in the fishing tournaments against the best anglers. Todd says, always have fun, make sure the people around you are having fun, and give thanks to Jesus every day.
