"My name is Johnny Dowd, and I enjoy surfing in the summer, or when it is warm enough to trunk it. I love going to the beach, and hanging out with friends. I play Water Polo and Swim Team for my high school, La Jolla High School. I also enjoy Skate Boarding and going to skate parks with my friends. I am 16 years old and moved to San Diego from the North Shore Of Oahu in 3 rd grade. I am also certified through the lifeguard program at my high school, and can preform CPR and work with an AED in case of emergencies. I have been part of the Junior Lifeguard program for 5 years, and was in the highest group possible for two years, the Cadet group. I look forward to working at the Surf School this summer, and helping others love the beach as much as I do."
