What do you like about where you live now?

A new environment and culture, stronger waves.

When and how did you start surfing?

I've been around surfing all my life. I was on the front of my dad's surfboard before I could walk. I grew up right in front of a nice beach break, and naturally, I picked it up and really started to love it when I was 12 years old.

Where is your go-to surf spot?

San Onofre & Echo Beach

Please tell us about the surfboard you usually ride. Brand, shaper, dimentions, fin setup, etc.

I have been riding my Karina High Heel model by Thomas Surfboards. It's a 9'5" flat with a nice amount of concave. For fins, I use a Greenough 4-A Volan.
