What is your favorite surf spot and why?

So far, my favorite spot that I've surfed is Sayulita, just north of Puerto Vallarta. Fun reef break that peels right (and left on big days). Quaint little town with horses running wild through the dirt streets.

Why did you join the Atlanta Surf Posse?

To meet other like-minded people and plan surf trips.

Where did you catch your first wave?

Must have been New Smyrna Beach, FL, circa 1977. Dad pushed me on a blow up raft at age 5. I grew up on a lake and did tons of water sports: born with gills. I swim a mile in the pool 3x/week to stay in shape for the season.

Short board, long board, SUP, or other?

Hey, my name's Doug. I hail from Central FL, the Orlando area. I grew up in FL and have been surfing for about 25 years. I have surfed Cali, Hawai'i, Mex, Costa, the entire east and some of the west coast of FL, and now GA.
