Something I love to do more than just about anything else.

Every summer I went to Long Island and played in the ocean. When I was about 11 my mom bought me some Corda flippers. I loved those until I lost one a few years later. Anyway, sometime in 1997 I started to think about entering the Pipeline Bodysurfing Classic. I went to the World Bodysurfing Championships in 2002, Pipeline Classic in 2004, Las Escolleras in 2009 and NSLG Pipeline 2011. Then back to WBC in 2018.
