I have been a water person my whole life. I was born in Hermosa Beach, Ca and have always lived a close distance to the ocean. I skim boarded at 7 and started surfing at 9 years old. I have worked and been involved in the surf and skateboard industry since I was 16. I have surfed; skimboarded and snowboarded all over the world. I discovered SUP during the summer when there where no waves and I was hoked for the first paddle! I enjoyed it so much and realized I could share this experience with others whether they knew how to surf or not.
