As a young teenager, Scott Stephens was typically either body-surfing in the Pacific Ocean or roller skating on the concrete of the San Fernando Valley. He started roller skating at age 7 and became a fan of roller derby and the Los Angeles Thunderbirds. Before getting his driver’s license, Scott frequently hitch-hiked to the beaches of Malibu. He was an adrenaline freak known for being towed on his roller skates on the Ventura Freeway and riding ridiculously large waves at Zuma Beach. His first job was L.A. City Lifeguard.
