American professional "big wave" surfer, nicknamed "Flea," and a three-time Mavericks competition winner. Virostko appears as himself in the surfing films Riding Giants (2004), Step Into Liquid (2003), and Billabong Odyssey (2003). Surfer magazine declared his 2004 wipeout on a 50-foot wave at Waimea Bay, Hawaii, the "Wipeout of the Decade".

As of 2009 Virostko is a recovering addict, and runs a program, "FleaHab", to teach other recovering addicts how to surf and be active while learning a new way of life. He starred in The Westsiders a 2010 documentary film by Josh Palmer that chronicles his difficult upbringing and addiction to drugs, on the west side of Santa Cruz.
