Why I surf: I surf because I love the ocean, the sport, and the rush of excitement I get on every single wave I stand up on, good or bad. I feel beyond blessed when I get to do this thing that I enjoy so much in some of the most beautiful places on Earth.

How Surfing inspires me: Surfing inspires me to push my limits and try to surf to the best of my ability. When I surf, I feel closest to God, because I am enjoying what He has blessed us with in a way that makes me happy, so surfing also inspires me to do more of what makes me feel so close to God.

My faith is important to me because: It is what keeps me going. In the good and the bad, I look to God to help me no matter the situation. It helps me to try and see the best in every situation. I know that if it wasn’t for my faith and the help of the Lord, I would not have achieved any of my greatest accomplishments in life thus far.

I use my faith to encourage others by… trying to be a light to everyone around me. I believe that if I give all glory to God, because He is the only reason I am where I am today, people might find that if you trust and believe in Him, He will help you to achieve your goals.
