How long have you been skateboarding? 3 years
How long have you been surfing? 2 years
What got you into these 2 sports?
I’ve been going to skate parks with my dad ever since I can remember It always been way more fun for me than regular parks, I just prefer Ramps and Bowls to Swings and Slides they are just sooo much more fun.
When I was little I used to hassle my dad to go with him for the morning surfs so I could play on the beach, I would even get into the car and refuse to leave, then one day my dad got me a soft board and pushed me into some small waves, and that was that. I was hooked pretty fast hahaha. Now I get up super early every morning and jump on my dad until he wakes up and takes me surfing.
What do you enjoy most about both surfing and skateboarding?
I love going really fast on my skateboard esp. in a bowl, being able to pop high and getting new tricks down, is just soo fun. Flying down the line on a wave its just the funnest thing ever... Also my friends, I really love Skating and Surfing my friends.
The girls I surf with are Rina, Aimee, Mana, Shino and Kaho, they are all double my age (12, 13, 14) but they are so funny and really good surfers they always make me laugh. It’s funny because we just sit in the lineup of adults just laughing and playing as girls do, but when the sets come we are all down to business. I don’t like being indoors and I really enjoy just being in the ocean.
