As a traveling free surfer I am part of an aspect of the surfing world that embraces a wholistic attitude and maintains an intimate relationship with our environment.

Traveling through a multitude of cultures and seascapes, experiencing waves with whales and dolphins has lead me to an awareness of the interconnected nature of all life, and the delicate systems that allow this network of life to exist. It is this divine play of forces that has inspired me to co-create Surfers for Cetaceans in the hope of maintaining the balance within the oceans of this planet.

My hope also is to ignite our compassion for the Cetacean Nation and spread the joy that we feel every time we share waves with the people of the sea.
