Surfing, Racing  |  San Diego, CA    

I’m from Kailua, Oahu and live in San Diego now. I’m a graphic designer and a local real estate agent. I live in Encinitas for the surf and the good vibes. I’ve been paddling outrigger since high school, and found stand up paddling a year or so ago. I’ve been addicted since!
