- If you were looking for the character of the day in SS036, see Jan (SS036).
Jan (Japanese: ジャン Jan) is a character of the day from The Pi-Kahuna.
Jan was a surfer from 40 years before the events of the episode, and was highly revered as a great surfer. He was the first person to have ever ridden the wave, Humungadunga (Japanese: ビッグ・チューズデー Big Tuesday), to the top of the rock in the ocean and plant his flag there. He had given his old surfboard to Victor—who idolized him—before heading off to surf the world.
- Jan's name, along with Puka and Victor's Japanese names (Michael and Vincent respectively), are a reference to Hollywood actor Jan-Michael Vincent, the lead actor of the movie Big Wednesday, from which their episode takes inspiration from.
