What gets you stoked? Surf trips, Winter storms and surfing in the snow. I love searching for novelty waves with Ben Graeff.

What do you do when you are not surfing all day? Hang at 7th street surf shop with the crew, skateboard and watch surf videos. 

What is a Grom? A stoked and positive surfer who rips. 

What moves are you working on this week? Right now I am working on airs, 360's and riding big waves. Ohh, you can't forget chasing barrels. 

What is your favorite thing about the ocean? The feeling of freedom.

Early morning offshores of Afternoon glass off? Early morning road trips with my dad searching for the best offshore conditions.  He is always taking me to new spots to help me improve. 

Dream Trip? Taking a road trip to California with Jeremy, Christian, and Cruz.  

Post surf Grinds? Philly Cheesesteak. 

Inspirations in or out of the water? Charging the cold winter swells with the local legends. 

Where do you want to be in 2020? Traveling the world and hitting the best surf spots and pushing my limits. 

Wave Pools of the Ocean? I love the Ocean and it is number one.  I do want to try the waves at Kelly Slater's wave pool.

What is your first memory of the ocean? Getting on my Dad's back as he paddled out and getting to ride waves with him.
