What got you started surfing- My love for water. I
was raised appreciating water from an early age. I started
competion swimming at the age of 8 and I started surfing at
keeps you surfing- Surfing to me is therapeutic. I get
in the water for exercise, camaraderie, & head clearing.
Most memorable surf- Perfect 4-5 foot North swell at
County Line. 3/4 guys and 50 dolphins sharing the stoke.
Dream surf trip, whether you've already taken it, or dream
of going- May 2004. 'Old Man's' in Cabo. 8-10 foot perfect
rights, 72 degree water, Patch and I getting 30 second noserides,
no one else out that can surf.
Favorite break- too many to list. Here's a small list:
County, Sunset, C-Street, 'Secret Spot', 'San O', East Cape
Cabo, Old Mans - Cabo
How has surfing changed you- Surfing has rooted me
and kept me in check as to how small we really are in the
scheme of things.
What do you do when there are no waves- After taking
care of things that I don't have time for when surfing, anything
surfers- so many that I draw inspiration from.....
Surfing pet peeve- people who don't take the time to
learn etiquette and respect.
Anything to add- People need to remember how fortunate
we are to live where we do and to be able to surf the waves
we surf. Learn to love & appreciate waves whether they
are 1 foot & poor or 5 foot and perfect. They all can
be as fun as you make them. Respect to all in the water (human
