ASA Chairman Brent Edwards

Brent Edwards

Brent Edwards first became involved with Operation Surf as a volunteer in 2011, and subsequently served as director of many Operation Surf Santa Cruz events. As a former Marine and an avid surfer, he recognized that helping war-experienced veterans access the transformative power of the ocean was a perfect way to combine his interests with his commitment to supporting those who have served.

For the past 24 years, he has also owned and operated his own premiere mortgage banking service in Santa Cruz, CA. He received his Bachelor of Science in Business Finance from San Jose State University.

“I am in awe of the transformational experience that Operation Surf offers to this day. It never ceases to amaze me,” says Brent. He hopes to stay involved for the rest of his life.
