"I’m Eli. I am a San Diego local who has been surfing since I was 14! It all started when I was a kid. My parents were in the Air Force and we were stationed on a little tropical island called Guam. There I fell in love with the ocean. I was 5 when I started boogie boarding and free diving. Now I am 30 and still loving every moment of being in the water! I have surfed in New Zealand, Mexico, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Fiji (Tavura) and of course all over San Diego. I enjoy teaching people of all ages and skill levels and seeing the joy the ocean brings. I am an Ocean lifeguard when I am not teaching surf! See you in the water! Cheers!"
