Kei Kobayashi started his professional surfing career at the early age of 12. He started participating in surfing tournaments, honing his skills and gaining more experience in each event. In 2020, he won the Ron Jon Quicksilver Pro in Florida.
Since that point, Kei has focused on preparing himself mentally and physically for each event he participates in, training in gyms and traveling to distant beaches around the world.
Since he was young, his goal has always been to participate in the World Surf League. Since then, he has become a more prepared athlete with the skills of a world-class surfing professional.
