When did you first get involved with Salt Life? I first got involved with Salt Life in 2014 when I was 10 years old. Ever since, it has been an awesome ride of living the “Salt Life”.
What is your favorite hobby when you’re not living the Salt Life? My favorite hobby when I am not surfing is fishing. I really enjoy fishing offshore for Bluefin, Yellow Tail, and Dorado. I also love fishing in our local kelp beds for Calico Bass....
What is your favorite category in the Salt Life line? My favorite category in the Salt Life line is the boardshorts because I am in them everyday. I wear them in the water and out of the water. They are very comfortable and look rad!
Is there something on your bucket list that you’d like to accomplish? Something on my bucket list is to go to the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia and live on a boat for a month, eating only the fish we catch. I want to do this with my closest friends, dad, and brother. We would island hop, surf perfect waves in the warm water and live off the ocean..
