What is your favorite thing about the ocean? I love all of the sea life that you get to see when you are surfing. Some of my favorites are the dolphins and seals. 

Early morning offshore or Afternoon glass off? I like to wake up early and surf the early morning offshores.  The offshores always give me big sections so I can throw a hammer in the pocket. 

Dream Trip? I want to get go to Bali with my team manager Matt Myers and get barrelled silly.

Post surf Grinds? I like to eat the food out of my fridge.

Inspirations in or out of the water?  I really look up to Connor Coffin and his huge lay backs. 

Where do you want to be in 2020? Well I will be 14 by then and I would love to be traveling the globe looking for good waves. 

Wave Pools or the Ocean? The Ocean all day every day.

What is your first memory of the ocean? Standing up on my boogie board when I was 3 years old.
