    My Moment =]

    I've been surfing pretty much all my life, since I was born and raised on a small island. But, once, when I was in seventh grade, my cousins and I were out late and night on a private beach and the waves started coming in too fast. My cousins were closer to the shore so...

    Addiction

    I've started surfing at least a few years ago and got my first board for my 10th birthday. It was a nice 6.8" NSP and I used it everyday for that summer. Then, my dad transferred me to his Cosmic Bull fish and it's like using a boogie board which was okay for me. Okay, so I'm...
