What are you doing to help keep the water clean:
I am always on the look out for trash on the water and on land so it doesn’t blow into the ocean. Also spreading the word to everyone to pick up trash and to always pack out what you pack in.

Why did you choose Starboard:
Starboard has more to it then the eye sees. Not only are they making the best gear they are all bout healthy living. They are use bioresin in all the boards which is a lot less harmful for everything and everyone. The tiki life styles is fun, relax but when it is game time we are ready to go.

What do you do when you are not paddling:
Living in Hawaii I like to also mix it up with windsurf and surfing. I also do a bunch of running and swimming to cross train a bit.
