What do you do when you are not surfing all day?

Hike, build mountain biking trails, exploring, and sometimes I skateboard when it is dry. 

What is a Grom?

A stoked human. (any age)

 What moves are you working on this week? Improving my roundhouse.

What is your favorite thing about the ocean? That there is still so much to be explored! 

Early morning offshore or Afternoon glass off? Early morning. Because it feels more adventurous! 

Dream Trip?  Going on a boat trip to the Mentawaiis. You know why! With @shazabsurfin @aquajunkie @marcuspaladino because we would surf all day long together. 

Post surf Grinds? 

Burritos! 

Inspirations in or out of the water? 

John John Florence.

Where do you want to be in 2020? 

Stoked and surfing every day! 

Wave Pools or the Ocean?

 Ocean. (But If your reading this Kelly I’m totally in!)

What is your first memory of the ocean?
