HOMETOWN: Kihei, Hawaii

404 Paddlesurf, Maui Jim, Hippostick, Aloha Crossfit, OnIt Pro and FCS Fins.

1st place stock division Molokai 2 Oahu for past 3 years, 5th-place overall Molokai 2 Oahu 2015, 4th-place overall Olukai Ho’olaulea on stock board, 3rd-place overall Paddle Imua on a stock, 6th-place overall Poi Bowl Race on a stock

Enjoy life and what I’m doing, improve myself and help to improve others as much as possible. I want to also move to the unlimited boards and win the Maui 2 Molokai and Molokai 2 Oahu channel crossing’s next year. I also would like to race more outrigger races this year and become a more versatile waterman as well. The biggest thing for me in 2016 is to find sponsors who can financially support me because traveling to races and competing is very expensive.
