John Philbin is an American surfer who has appeared in television and film.
John first began acting in high school, around the same time he began surfing. Choosing acting over wrestling, John joined a drama team that went on to win awards throughout his high school career. Upon leaving high school, John went to UC Santa Barbara and surfed on their surf team. When he transferred to USC he thought his surfing days were over and that acting would have to be his primary passion, since he was going to be living in a big city. John went on a trip in 1980 to Bali where he surfed for a month in what he refers to as 'paradise'.
John went on to appear in films such as Stephen King's, Children of the Corn and Grandview, U.S.A.. That same year, he also appeared in an episode of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories alongside actor Kevin Costner. It was later on that he once again took up surfing when he landed the role of Turtle in the film, North Shore, which gave him the chance to act and surf with some of his childhood heroes.
While filming North Shore, Gerry Lopez told John that he could surf and act. This inspired John to keep surfing and acting after the film ended and later landed him the role of Nathanial in the film Point Break, opposite Patrick Swayze, Keanu Reeves and Gary Busey.
