“I love Surfing and being on the Ocean. I’m use to shortboarding. And in 2010, when my brother started on the stand up paddle, I realized that SUP surfing wasn’t that kind of slow surfing that I thought it was. In just a few weeks I saw Ian snapping and ripping any kind of wave with his SUP! He inspired me. Since then, the SUP surfing level has gone through the roof and it won’t stop growing!! Just always remember to respect everyone that’s surfing and have fun too!”
