Prone, DK or Stand up? Prone

Who inspires your Bodyboarding/Photography? Bodyboarder would definitely be Dan Taylor. Simple, yet so much style riding barrels. The best part is I actually find myself hanging out with him in the water now shooting waves. Unreal! B) That’s really tough. Believe it or not, Tyler Smith has images I usually gush over. Sam Farkas is my favorite wave photog if I had to pick.

Favorite kind of wave? A glassy 4-5 ft A-frame. Not a big wave rider. Too old and have too many kids.  Haha

Favorite music to listen to before riding? Janes Addiction or M83

Best food to eat after riding? Mexican Food – El Farolito

Why is it important for us to have clean beaches? This is a loaded question. To preserve the most beautiful landscape and my playground from as far back as I can remember. Most importantly, for my kids. I want them to have the same experiences I had growing up. Who wants to hang out at a dirty beach…….

Any last words? Shout outs? I’m really looking forward to being part of something as great as Coastal Playground. Deep down most of us want to be part of something to give back, but we get so caught up in our everyday living really never pursue it.  That’s why I am beyond stoked that I was approached by Coastal Playground to get involved. To be able to contribute profits from my wave art to help keep our beaches clean is something I could have only dreamed of doing  6 months ago.  So stoked!!
