How would you describe your work ethic? 

I always do enough to get the work done and I have no problem putting my head down when I've got my sights set on a goal.

Who has had the biggest influence on your surfing?

My dad, Ward.

Where would you most like to travel?

The Mentawis, and France. France has good waves and I want to see the Eiffel Tower in person.

If you were a car what would you be?

An older Porsche.

How much time do you spend online?

Not a lot. Maybe an hour a day.

Surfline, mainly. Some blogs. Marine Layer-Dane's blog.
