"I first took a surfing lesson in Kauai when I was a pretty little kid. I would always take surf lessons or rent a board whenever we went on beach vacations as a family growing up. I have always loved playing in the water whether it was a pool, a lake, a river, or the ocean and have also always been really into board sports like skateboarding and snowboarding. When I moved to San Diego in 2008 it was only natural for me to gravitate to surfing an that's when I really started devoting a lot of my time and life towards it. It soon became my favorite thing to do and greatly influenced my life in numerous positive ways. I have been teaching for 3 1/2 years now and there is still no better joy or feeling then helping someone catch their first wave. Whatever your are is it's never to late to learn how to surf, improve your surfing, or to just play in the waves."
