Q&A

Hobbies:
Surfing, travel, photography, writing
Best day in my life:
The day my daughter was born.
Best day possible:
Wake up early for a dawn patrol beach break session here in San Diego. Come home to reload with some eggs, avocado and coffee. Head back out after the midday sun for a sunset session on the reefs.
Best 'vacation':
Exploring a foreign coastal country while experiencing new culture, food, landscapes and ocean conditions. I?d bascially like to do a SUP version of the original Endless Summer.
Favorite music:
Anything and everything.
Favorite book:
"The Alchemist", by Paulo Coelho
Book I read now:
Happiest Baby on the Block (new Dad)
Favorite motor vehicle:
My 1989 Ford Econoline van from college. Nickname: The Beast
Favorite spot(s):
The reef breaks around south San Diego county and NW Puerto Rico.
Favorite JP longboard:
Race 14' x 24.5"
Favorite JP shortboard:
Surf Pro 8'1"
Personal 'madness' & 'obsessions':
I go through phases of obsessions. Besides surfing, my latest would have to be gardening.
Inspired by:
My wife's patience.
Proud about:
Living the life I want to live and following my passions.
Sport targets:
Win the Lost Mills SUP Championship again. Continue to improve my SUP surfing and exploring new places to paddle.
The future:
Raising my daughter to be a good human and to teach her to enjoy the natural environment we live in.
Sponsors:
JP, Runa, NP Surf, Kaenon, Quickblade Paddles, Raw Elements
My slogan (word I live by):
If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
