HANDPLANE OF CHOICE?

I prefer the WAW Arrow Moontail for most days because of it's versatility.  From small mushy days to big steep days, it rides well in all conditions for me.

WHERE DO YOU CALL HOME?

La Jolla, California,USA

WHY DO YOU BODYSURF?

I bodysurf because it feels so damn good.  I love being off the land and in the energy of the waves, diving under the whitewater, the excitement of a coming set, positioning for the take off then driving as hard as I can on the highline to get as much speed as possible.

WHAT WAVE TYPES DO YOU LIKE TO BODYSURF?

I like to bodysurf all kinds of waves, especially the ones without board surfers.  I like the challenge of a shallow reef break that's got a curving hollow barreling bowl to the wave where I can hold a line and lay back in that perfect spot for what seems like forever.  At the same time, there's nothing like a solid slamming shore-break session.  In So. Cal. we're blessed with a good variety of waves.
