You know who you are.
I’m getting better at switch barrel riding. Try it sometime; it makes an average day seem huge!
Best day surfing
Hurricane Ike delivered the best waves I’ve ever seen at home. Offshore winds and tubes from sunrise to sunset!
Surfed some of the longest waves of my life in Mexico last year! The food there is delicious. I’m still dreaming about shrimp quesadillas and endless point breaks!

Where it come from?
Not switch barrel riding, but still damn impressive.
When did you start surfing?
When I was 7 years old. My parents taught me how to surf.
What’s the worst injury you’ve gotten from surfing?
A few years ago, I sprained my ankle on a chilly January day. I landed an air on the blade of my foot and heard a pop. My feet were so numb; I didn’t know anything was wrong. Then I woke up for a glass of water at 3 am and couldn’t walk. First time with crutches was humbling!
What’s your favorite video?
New Emissions of Light and Sound and Modern Collective.
Everything by Hunter S. Thompson, Rhonda Byrne, or Jon Krakauer.
I enjoy listening to Led Zeppelin, The Doors and Jimi Hendrix. Some of my favorite local sounds are Ruby the Hatchet and Atlantic, Atlantic.

Breaking the law

Nothing like Jersey… Tommy getting ready to blast the roof off!
Arachnophobia, I hate spiders!
Lesson learned the hard way
Paddling in at the wrong spot in Puerto Rico. Yup, I walked right through an urchin bed.
