7X SUP World Champion
2013 2nd KSP Kitesurfing World Champion

Being a water athlete and growing up around the ocean it is something that is a part of life. Being born into a family that was at the beach all the time, I grew up having a few choices; to either play in the sand or get out on the water. Once I began surfing and catching waves on my own I was instantly excited and that was the beginning of what I would call my life's dream, to be a surfer. After getting my parents to take me to go surf everyday to the south shore of Maui, I was quickly turning into a surfer and someone who could only talk about one thing, and that was surfing! One thing is forsure, the reason I Windsurf, Kitesurf, Stand Up Paddle, Tow-in surf, Foil board, Canoe Paddle, Body surf is because I want to be a surfer 100% of the time, and having the most fun!
