yon Farrell has action sports stardom in his genes. His mother, Angela Cochran, was a two-time Windsurfing World Champion and won a gold medal in wind surfing at the first-ever X Games. His father, Campbell Farrell, who hails from New Zealand, is a legendary big-wave surfer.
He hopes to compete in the 2016 Winter Olympics: “Everyone’s always surprised when they hear I’m a snowboarder from Hawaii,” Lyon says. “… and although I love to surf and skate too, snowboarding has become my number one priority.”
