A known wave hunter, a place in which fear and risk go hand in hand, Coco has earned the respect of the surf community and has mastered the swell in some of the world’s most iconic surf destinations, like in Teahupo’o, Haiti, where in 2015 he amazed the world with a death-defying ride on a wave approximately 15 meters high.

Born in Sayulita, Nayarit, this master of shortboard surfing and specialist in spearfishing, Diego has had a successful career, dominating Mexican surfing for over 20 years and being named National Champion on multiple occasions. Diego holds the #2 Latin American Surfer ranking and represents Mexico in Surfing World Cups. He is also passionate about fishing and is a spearfishing and apnea expert.
