  • The body surfing culture is so embracing. A wave for one is a wave for all. It's a shared experience were having a great time is the most important outcome.

    It’s a small select few who embrace the full experience of being in the wave. I love bodysurfing because it’s not about controlling the wave. It’s not about trying to get the most air; it’s about being inseparable with the wave. Being as close to Mother Nature as you possibly can be.

    I think there has always been something about the water that I’ve always loved. Beach on Sunday has always been a tradition in our family, a tradition that has flourished into a passion for the water.
