"About 7 years ago, I started surfing. I skated, skim boarded, road dirt bikes, and bmx bikes growing up, but always loved the beach. Then, one day, my mom took me out on her 9'0" and the first wave I took, I stood up. After that, I was hooked. Surfing is something that has become a huge part of my life and has helped me through a lot. And in these 7 years of being in the water, I always come out stoked and excited like it was my first time ever riding a board. So trust me, when you paddle out for your first lesson and you stand up on that first wave, you will get this feeling too. All I ask is that you show up with an open mind, a smile, and to be ready to get stoked!!"
