Where were you born and raised?
I was born in Florida, raised in Puerto Rico.
Please tell us about the surfboard you usually ride. Brand, shaper, dimensions, fin setup, etc.
I just came out with a model called the "Weird Series" shaped specifically for weirdos dddd.
Where are your favorite surf spots that you've been to?
I love novelty waves, and as I continue to go further down the wormhole of that genre in the surf, I like what I'm finding... this recently led me to Indonesia to surf the bono "7 Ghosts" wave, which is a tidal bore. Been one of my favorites so far.…
Where are the surf spots you want to visit in the future that you've never been to?
It would be cool to surf on Mars once they let us up there.
Which do you like more, Air or Tube?
Nothing beats getting Tubed. Let's be real.
Which do you like more, Noseride or Maneuver?
I'm a wave explorer, not a surfboard explorer, Maneuvers.
Which one video would you highlight in this playlist and why?
I'd like to highlight my most recent video that I'm about to drop, TIDAL PHENOMENON known as the BONO "7 GHOSTS”.
Who are the surfers that inspire you?
Antony Colas, Freddie Meadows, Burton Hathaway, KB, Steven King, Tao Schirrmacher, Nathan Fletcher, Ozzie Wright
What are the surf films/videos that inspire you?
I love Ozzie Wright videos. His artistic approach to making films and his surfing are magic.
What are the films/movies that inspire you? (other than surf films)
I'm a huge Wes Anderson fan, also John Carpenter films are inspiring…
Other than surfing, what are you passionate about?
My family, music, editing, and the arts.
Tracks you love?
I have some music on Spotify that me and Dave Malcolm make for Weird Waves. How about some blatant self promotion?! Search for VIP Lemonade on Spotify.
