Best thing about your life as a surfer?

The lifestyle of a surfer is definitely the best you could have through a sport. It’s a very adventurous and fun lifestyle. Being in nature and in the ocean; surfing with dolphins, sunrises and sunsets and crystal blue seas. Travelling and meeting new people, having fun in the surf and being out of your comfort zone and pushing yourself. I would say surfers are a lot more relaxed and just have so much fun in nature.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Hopefully surfing professionally. It would be my 2nd year out of school and I hope to have travelled and surfed around the world, learning about the world and meeting new people. If I travel I would like to stop at rural areas and spend time with children, play with them and try and teach them English.

What’s your superpower?

If I had one, it would be to read people’s minds when I want, but I wouldn’t want to always know what people are thinking though.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Definitely CHOCOLATE… A big weakness! Haha…

If you could choose 5 people to have at a party, who would they be?

1. Bethany Hamilton
2. Dane Reynolds
3. Chase Crawford
4. Rob Patterson
5. Taylor Lautner

The one thing I would never travel without is…

Money! And my cellphone.

The one thing that makes me me is that I…

Often have a smile on my face, bubbly and love meeting new people. Having fun and I love spending time with friends and being adventurous.
