"My name is David Elliott and I’m PASSIONATE about the sport of surfing. I grew up in Orange County where I decided to learn to surf at the age of 14. I progressed quickly in the sport and became addicted, to put it lightly. When I was 17 I because surfing competitively for my high school and began teaching surf lessons at one of the local surf school. I have been teaching lessons and competing ever since. I genuinely enjoy pushing people into their first waves and meeting interesting people from around the world. Last year I had the privilege of studying abroad in the country of Indonesia, living in the country for 6 months. This trip changed my life and fueled my passion for traveling the world and experiencing new cultures. I can’t wait to meet you, hear your story and share with you the sport that has given me so much!"
