"Surfing and the ocean are my sanctuary. Away from the daily stressors of Life, I can reflect. I can be both something and nothing on the water. It helps put things in perspective whenever I am down. I can go in angry and come out calm. I can go in happy and come out even happier. I love The Ocean. I love surfing. Its great... I wish you Peace and Great Waves!"
