James Fazio

Professional Surfer


When I was 13 years old, I had a rare blood disease that should have taken my life, but I was miraculously healed. This completely changed the way I would view the world for the rest of my life.

I started surfing almost immediately after my disease and never stopped after that. Now I surf competitively in the World Qualifying Series and do film making side by side, but my main focus in life is not just surfing and film making. I love helping others and helping others to believe in themselves. My wife and I focus all our time to share love with people and help them become the people they were created to be. Using film is a way to empower others and show the beauty of someones culture, life and perspective.

We are currently moving to Bali, Indonesia, where we are working to use surfing and sports to empower the youth of Bali to do MORE with their lives.

Career Highlights

Time Well Spent (Producer)



Time Well Spent

James created a Time Well Spent to give a life changing trip to four young men from different walks of life around the world. Time Well Spent is about four young men from different challenging background of pain and hardships that have found refuge in the ocean. We will lead you to each boys front doorsteps in Indonesia, Hawaii, Peru and Australia to hear their stories and learn where they come from. Finally, we brought all four boys together in Bocas Del Toro, Panamá. As the boys surfed perfect waves and received the journey of a lifetime, they also be learned what it meant to give back to people even less fortunate then themselves. As a part of the process we also built a house for a family in need in Panama with Homes of Hope and providing water filters to those who do not have access to clean water. We want to show the four boys that they have much more Worth then they can imagine and that they can make an impact on this world.
