Hey BenWhat’s going on? What have you been working on lately?

I’ve been super busy traveling both to Hawaii and Barbados and doing several contests too. I have been training in and out of the water just trying to improve my surfing.

Any new tricks, you really want to master this season?

I want to get really good at barrel riding.

Big travel plans coming up?

I will be spending most of my summer in California competing.

Favorite place you’ve ever travelled?

I’ve been to a lot of really great places but my absolute favorite place is the Boom in Nicaragua, but I love strike missions to OBX.

What’s your go-to wind down activity? Favorite thing to watch, read, do?

I love watching a basketball podcast called Through the Wire. I also love playing basketball with my friends.

One snack you can’t live without….

Açaí bowls from Gojuice in New Smyrna Beach, Fl.

If you were stuck on a desert island and could only have 3 things what would they be…

An Orion surfboard, Monster Energy drinks and peanut butter.

Any last shout out’s or thank you’s?

Thank you to all of my sponsors, my coach, my parents, and everyone else who has supported me over the years.
