When and how did you get started with surfing?
I learned how to wake surf in 2009. My brother had been wake surfing for a couple years before and came out on the boat one day and taught me how to ride and I have been hooked ever since!
Where is your favourite place to surf?
I really like wake surfing at Lake Powell... the cliffs that surround you are unreal!
What motivates you to join the World Wakesurf Championship?
My love for the sport drives me to continue to want to be the best out there. I couldn't imagine my life any other way. I practice daily and my life revolves around the sport!
What’s your concern when choosing a surfboard?
My pro model wake surf board really doesn't feel like anything else out on the market. It has the most "surf like" feel to it. I really like for the board to just flow under my feet. It has just the right amount of speed to get some good airs but also has some rounded rails to get that surfy feel to throw in some huge snaps.
What’s your favourite quote or mantra you can’t live without?
Everything happens for a reason is a quote that I constantly live by! Another quote that always keeps pushing me and motivates me is "You have to do what others won't to achieve what others don't"
