Расскажите о вашей карьере.
I started windsurfing 32 years ago on Orcas Island, Вашингтон. It’s been one heck of a ride since and has shaped my life considerably from the cars I drive to the friends I have and the places I’ve lived. It’s been about staying close to windsurfing, keeping it fun and creating a life that allows me to sail often. Sometimes that meant living out of my van for many summers, having extra roommates on Maui, working two jobs etc. I always had to support myself 100%, nope, no trust fund or parental backing here folks, just a kid trying to follow his dreams.
Какие ваши любимые места для плавания?
Kuau, Hookipa, Ущелье, Сан - Карлос, Backyards.
Если бы вы могли поехать куда угодно в мире виндсерфинга, где бы это было?
I just saw a video of Cabo Verde. That’s where I want to go….Baja and Maui are high on the list as well.
Кто является вашими спонсорами?
I have the best gear on the planet thanks to, Naish, Четыре, Chinook and Nolimitz. I’m due for a new Promotion suit though and some updated Dakine gear…(hint). Huge thanks to all these guys because without them I’d have to work three jobs.
Каковы ваши вдохновение?
I get inspiration of some kind from just about everyone I know but Robby Naish was my earliest inspiration and still is to this day. Victor the Inflictor cause he charges the fun side of life like no one I’ve seen. I am mostly inspired by those that have created a life to revolve around a passion.
What is your favorite part about competing on the AWT?
The people involved. The new, the old and the nuts that make competing a blast. And of course showing the young guns a thing or two..;-) There are a few guys that I’ve been competing with for almost 20 years and it’s been like a reunion of sorts when I go to an AWT event. It’s awesome, the sport and the people in it are what keeps me coming back for more.
Каковы ваши цели 2012?
To make it the best year ever.
