Not Really Surfing?
WHEN DID YOU FIRST BEGIN TOW-SURFING?
In December 2003, Nelson Armitage's son, Nelson Junior, took me out to an outer reef and it was 15- to 20-feet. The first time I ever stood up on a tow-board with straps I got that same feeling as snowboarding and windsurfing except you were able to do that on a wave without the sail. I knew that was what I wanted to do.
DID YOU GO STRAIGHT INTO TOW-SURFING OR DID YOU PADDLE FIRST?
I started towing first and then I started paddle surfing after. I never got good at paddle surfing in small waves. I can paddle into any size wave people paddle into but I never got into the high-performance surfing.
