Briefly describe yourself… I am a pro surfer who draws, paints, writes, and hangs out!

Talk us through your average day… Get up at 7, drink 2 cups of coffee, take dog for a beach run, start feeling a bit strange from caffine overload, check surf, go surf… or just watch for hours hoping the swell will pick up, try to discourage green fly from landing in my garden (this is usually done in the form of telepathy), check surf all round the county, country, continent and world on the internet, get a bit jealous that every where is pumping but here. Do the washing up, go surf. Sleep.
