Being a 4th generation San Diegan there is no place I’d rather be and nothing I’d rather be doing. After graduating from Loyola Marymount University, I worked in the Investments field for a year, took a few months off to surf Costa Rica until the light bulb went off and I came back to start Isle Surf & SUP.

My surfing addiction started 20 years ago when pops pushed me into my first wave as a little kid. And the stoke of that first wave still remains today. Surfing is pure fun and I enjoy sharing the sport with others just like pops shared it with me. It wasn’t until after graduating college I decided to turn my addiction into a company and Isle Surf & SUP was born.
