his first surf board, a 6'2" WRV, from a friend for $100.
Living in Silver Spring, Maryland, and being 5 hours from the
Outer Banks of North Carolina without a car, it would be a couple
of years before he would take his first paddle-out.
the meantime, he completed his bachelors degree in art at
Howard University in Washington, D.C. A year after finishing at
Howard, he relocated to the chilly waters of Northern California,
where his passion for surfing came into full bloom. Currently,
he still has his first love, the 6'2" WRV, plus he has added
a 9'0" WRV Long Board and an 8'0" Linden Catalina Fun
Board to the collection.

water, still Bodyboarding, but leaning towards Surfing.

extreme measures into his own hands, he packed up and, with a
friend decided to learn to surf while on the road. For 18 months,
