I have been working or playing in the outdoors all my life. I grew up surfing in Virginia Beach and the Outer Banks as a kid. As a teenager I worked for the Virginia Beach Lifesaving Service as an oceanfront lifeguard, which gave me basic first aid and safety skills and cultivated a deep awareness, respect and understanding of the ocean.

After high school I started my surfing travels and have since surfed Puerto Rico, Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Spain, Morocco, Portugal, the Canary Islands, Australia, Indonesia, Barbados and Canada.

The surfing experience was great. They made sure we had an understanding of the board and the basics and by the end we were able to stand up on the waves. The paddleboard excursion was nice and relaxing and provided some great views. Overall a very nice experience.
