I was 12 when I stepped into an air conditioned theater in Imperial Beach, California with my Dad.
I had no idea I would be forever transformed.
The things I wanted out of life were shaped that day -- the places I wanted to go, the people I wanted to meet, the things I wanted to do.
It all revolved around one thing really. Surfing.
Someone showed me how it could look, what it would feel like and the adventures that were possible.
Watch this short video about how my life was influenced by this legend, Bruce Brown and my full circle moment in his last film.
There have been many obstacles for me in my life, but one thing never changed -- I never stopped dreaming. I never stopped trying.
I have Bruce Brown (and my Dad!) to thank for that.
