I left home at 16, with the clothes I was wearing, my surfboard, trunks, and a bedroll, headed for paradise. Living in the back seat of a rusted out Cadillac, was anything but, then again, at first light when I could see the waves peeling at Sunset Point. I knew my rash decision was perfect. I did odd jobs for a few bucks to keep eating, but when Greg MacGillvary hired me to star in his film Free and Easy, I figured I had it made. Paid to surf…
Since then, I’ve directed, shot and produced more then 65 surf films. Taken at least a half million stills. Shaped, glassed and painted 1000’s of dynamic, fast flying, tube riding, aero dynamic surfboards. I’ve used traditional surfboard building materials to paint and shape since those first early days when I knew I had made it into a world of discovery and adventure. I’ve never taken the traditional path, but I feel as though my life has been touched by magic.
