In 2007 Stormy was inducted into the Ocean City Chapter Surfrider Foundation as a Legend.

Stormy has two sons, Drex & Collin, and his wife and partner, Bev. Stormy and his family have been snowbirds since his oldest son started elementary school. Having lived 8 months of the year in the Florida Keys and 4 months in Ocean City, MD over a span of 20 years, Stormy became an avid diver. He has had many dive jobs in the past such as installing the infamous Sombrero Reef mooring buoys off of Marathon Key and has also participated in salvage diving in Maryland. He has been a commercial fisherman by trade for most of his life and has the knowledge and skills to catch any fish in the sea. Stormy started surfing when he was fourteen and has committed his life to working hard and finding the perfect wave.

Bev Harrington

Bev is Captain Stormys wife. Having lived in the Florida Keys she too became an avid diver and now has her Advanced Diver Certification. On board the Tiki she is the main Chef and enjoys creating memorable meals out of the days catch. Bev finds it very rewarding to be in charge of the office detail, keeping a clean and comfortable vessel, and making sure that the guests are well fed. She likes taking the guests, on her 16 ft. Carolina Skiff, to exotic beaches for snorkeling, exploring or just shopping around for souvenirs on the different islands. She is an accomplished Silversmith pursuing jewelry making since 1990. With the use of her underwater camera, a DVD of your scuba and island excursions is always a good way to remember your "Tiki Adventure". Her determination to surf started the day that Drex turned 22.
