In 1980, at age 20, Davey Miller arrived on North Shore Oahu and cut himself out a niche as one of its top riders. He placed in the finals at Huge Pipeline and Sunset Beach, and rode Waimea with only a handful of his peers. Charging with no fear or thought of bodily harm, Davey surfed solid for 20 years. At age 38 he reclaimed a final at Very Large Pipeline with 19 year-old Andy Irons. Davey is noted for being one of the top 10 surfers of all time at Backdoor Pipeline.
Nowdays, Davey is a talented jazz musician who has performed with many Jazz masters including: Mitch Forman (Stan Gets, Wayne Shorter), John Beasly (Miles Davis, Freddy Hubbard), Ric Fierabracci (Chick Corea, Billy Cobham Spectrum band), Brad Rabuchin (Ray Charles), Doug Webb (Horace Silver). He is also the promoter and host of Ventura's First thursday of the Month Jazz Night
