How long have you been surfing?

June 2011 for real... Before that a few half-hearted attempts that never went anywhere. I just went to a surf camp in Costa Rica, which was oh-mazing! Definitely sticking with it this time around!

Why did you start surfing?

It's Southern California, seemed the appropriate thing to do...

What do you ride?

A 9' longboard that I call either the limousine or the torpedo, depending how things are going that day... I also have a 7'3, but only use it when I feel particularly daring.

Where do you normally surf?

El Porto and 26th Street (near where I live) and Bay Street. I also have been to Sunset a couple times and would like to go again, great fun!

Introduction

Hi! I've lived in L.A. since 1999 and it took me 12 years to really start surfing... So much fun!
