DJ's Bio

DJ's Bio


D.J. Struntz

DJ Struntz is one of a kind. He shoots crazy adventures from surf and to spearfishing, sure, and he shoots it beautifully, but he also is neck-deep in the bloody world of tactical medicine as the Minister of Propaganda for North American Rescue, the premiere equipment supplier to everyone from your local police to elite Special Forces units.  Tall tales you say? Well DJ Struntz is a tall tale. If you are lucky enough to ever spend time with any of the Globe or Riffe Teams, from Dion Agius, Joe G, CJ or Damien Hobgood, or Mark Healy himself, they will tell you stories that are hard to believe. You will, in fact, have to clear your schedule for three days while they talk. Some of their stories will be accompanied by groans. DJ drives his surfers. He wakes them up before the sun and shouts them into massive, heaving waves. He is there too, in the madness. Shooting it all and shooting it beautifully. And if they happen to fall and kiss the reef, well, DJ was taught first aid by Special Operations Medics/Docs.
