Board- 9'0 Becker "Geoff Moysa,"
What got you started surfing- I've always loved the
ocean, and boogie boarding got old. Surfing made sense.
keeps you surfing- The endless search for that adrenaline
rush and huge kool-aid grin you get after an amazing ride.
Also, meeting nice, friendly people.
Most memorable surf- Ironically, 9/11/01 was memorable
in more ways than one. I got a couple of the most amazing
back to back overhead waves at Sunset that went on forever.
It was a picture perfect day for conditions too. I still wonder
if that was all a dream or a nightmare.
Dream surf trip, whether you've already taken it, or dream
of going- Ah, Costa Rica, someday. Hopefully sooner than
Favorite break- Sunset, Malibu, Staircase, County Line.
How has surfing changed you- I'm more tanned. It's
also taught be to take more chances. I feel more balanced.
What do you do when there are no waves- Whine, watch

are you trying to do or learn to raise your level of surfing-

Favorite surfers- Jay Moriarty(RIP), Megan Abubo, Wingnut,
Joel Tudor, Kassia Meador, Rochelle Ballard, Serena Brooke
and Nick, Ken, Janet and Heike for letting me drop in on them.
Surfing pet peeve- People who drop in too close and
don't kick out. I'm all for sharing, but not at the risk of
head, and board dings. And angry surfers who believe a pecking
order should be taken seriously.
Ideal surf conditions- Consistent 4-6 ft, glassy warm
water, little to no wind, partially sunny, with just me and
Anything to add- If there's something in life you've
always wanted to do, find a way. No regrets.
