Taira Barron


Taira Barron is the North Shore's local princess. At 19 years old, Taira's local knowledge is evident every session as she quietly paddles into the best-set waves of the day. With an easygoing, down to earth personality she is well known by the locals.

She is thankful that she has family, friends, a roof over her head, and air in her lungs.
