Surfing Ability: Decent
Surfboard Preference: High Performance Short Board
Surfing Performance Preference: Power Surfing: Tom Carrol, Occy, Poncho, etc., Slater and of course the purity and fluidity of Tom Curren.
Favorite Surf Video: "Off The Wall II" It's a classic video with Vintage Tom Curren surfing Rincon and Sandspits. I would watch his segments in the mirror so I could visualize his lines and turns as a goofy-foot.

SurfTrip Video: Mentawai's 2005

I was on the WavePark Island for 20 days and I only have 2 minutes of video to show. We scored so many hours good surf this video really doesn't do the WavePark Justice but it's all I have. I am riding a 6'8" Tim Stamps Rounded Pin Tail. It is an excellent surfboard but it was a bit too big for the waves. I had an insane 6'6" Tim Stamps Sqaure Tail that broke on the 3rd day and my backup board, 6'6" Kirk Bierke I had left over from my North Shore days also buckled.
